Dr. Kathleen March (University of Maine) discusses Galician literature

In this presentation from April 4, 2024, Dr. Kathleen March (University of Maine) discusses how Galician literature has existed since the Middle Ages, with a ‘mere’ four centuries of silence until the 19th century. It is a worthwhile challenge to enter the cultural and linguistic seascape of this writing, which encountered another loss of visibility with the fascist dictatorship (1936-1975). The last half-century has qualified creative writing in galego as a literature of resistance (and quality) that deserves a place in World Literature as it emerges from what once was called a status peripheral to Spanish writing. In addition, Dr. March presented her various translation projects of Galician literature and encouraged future translators to join her in this worthwhile endeavor.
