Now VIRTUAL on Zoom!
Cuban-born writer and scholar Dr. Odette Casamayor-Cisneros is Associate Professor at the University of Pennsylvania. This lecture is in conjunction with the Arte Cubano exhibition.
Odette Casamayor-Cisneros (Ph.D. École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris, 2002) is the author of Utopia, distopía e ingravidez: reconfiguraciones cosmológicas en la narrativa postsoviética cubana (Utopia, Dystopia and Ethical Weightlessness: Cosmological Reconfigurations in post-Soviet Cuban Fiction). Published by Iberoamericana-Vervuert in 2013, her book examines, through the lens of literary production, the existential void experienced by Cubans after the collapse of the Socialist Bloc in the 1990s.
Registration is encouraged but not required. Free and open to the public.
