John Beverley's masterclass: the politics of theory
Thu 18 May 2017, 14:00 – 17:00 BST
Join us for the second of three masterclasses run by Professor John Beverley (University of Pittsburgh), renowned scholar of Hispanic literature. This class will use cultural studies and subaltern studies to explore crucial issues in identity, critical theory, politics and the arts, ranging from the status of cultural studies in the academy, to the emergence of discourses of neoconservatism in the Latin American world. This series marks the inauguration of a scholarly exchange between Birkbeck’s Iberian and Latin American Studies scholars and the University of Pittsburgh.
This is the second event of three sessions held on Wednesday 17, Thursday 18 and Monday 22 May.
