April 30, 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.

Literary critics, anthropologists and others have identified madness as a space of resistance in women’s writing (The Mad Woman in the Attic, Los cautiverios de las mujeres: madresposas, monjas, presas, putas y locas). Proposing madness as a space of fluidity (Elizabeth Grosz) and as an interstitial space a lo Homi K. Bhabha, Melero will examine la locura as an ontological space of resistance in the work of three Latinx writers: Estela Portillo Trambley, Judith Ortiz Cofer, and Ana Castillo.

Presented by Pilar Melero, Professor of Languages and Literature, and Race and Ethnic Studies, UW-Whitewater.

Part of the LACUSL Speakers Series.
