Please join us for Professor Melissa Dinverno's talk, "Lorca, Little Presses, and the Politics of Publication in Interwar Spain."
Based on new archival research, this talk challenges the myth of renowned Spanish writer Federico García Lorca’s presumed “terror” of and disdain for book publication. In addition to suggesting why this myth exists in scholarship and popular culture, I argue for a shift in our understanding of Lorca’s relationship to book production, of Spain’s literary publishing industry in the 1920s-30s, and of what constitutes the archive by which we study published and unpublished texts.
The talk will take place at noon on March 26, at GISB room 3067.
Lunch will be provided!
