February 10, 2017

Join Professor Anna Nogar at the Latin American & Iberian Institute on campus as she presents “The Challenge of National Literary Historiography: The Case of Mexican Literature” next Wednesday, February 15 at 12:00pm. In this presentation, she will discuss the challenges posed by the project of writing a history of Mexican literature for the 21st century. This discussion follows the publication of A History of Mexican Literature (Cambridge University Press, 2016), a collaborative project that involved pulling together authors from across Mexican literary studies. Dr. Nogar will discuss the complex work of framing and populating the sections on colonial Mexican literature, Indigenous literature, and Mexican American Literature.
