Event description

Description

Join us for a series of masterclasses run by Professor John Beverley (University of Pittsburgh), renowned scholar of Hispanic literature. This masterclass explores structuralism and postcolonialism. It is the first of three sessions 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 event is spread in three sessions held on Wednesday 17, Thursday 18 and Monday 22 May. You can come to one or to the whole series.

This event is part of Birkbeck Arts Week 2017 - see the full programme here.

Please contact the organiser if you have any additional access requirements.
