NYC: Transitions/Transgressions (Columbia)
December 2, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The Department of Latin American and Iberian Cultures at Columbia invites you to:
Transitions/Transgressions: A discussion on feminism, neoliberalism and cultures of resistance in Portugal and Spain, forty years after the Portuguese Revolution
From the event organizers:
Poet and Professor Ana Luísa Amaral (University of Porto) will give the keynote address, engaging her own work, literature and poetry as resistance, and the fortieth anniversary of New Portuguese Letters (1972), which saw the arrest and trial of the three women authors, caught the attention of feminist thinkers such as Adrienne Rich and Simone de Beauvoir, and provoked international feminist activism.

We hope this dialogue will complicate the narrative of democratic transition in Portugal and Spain, and consider the ways in which transgressive cultures thrive and may be foreclosed upon in Iberia today.
