Escritoras de las Latin-a-méricas

In the PhD Program in Hispanic and Luso Brazilian Literatures and Languages at the Graduate Center, our intellectual community is enhanced by the academic events organized by our students. Besides the annual graduate student conference (coming up on its 22nd year!), each year HLBLL students have also organized readings, lectures, screenings, and discussions on a wide variety of topics and with exciting guests.

One such event is the upcoming two-part series, Escritoras de las Latin-a-méricas: Hablan las narradoras, which invites four distinguished women writers–Sylvia Molloy, Lina Meruane, Achy Obejas, and Valeria Luiselli–to enter into conversation with each other and the public about such possible topics as the experience of translation as a cultural exchange in New York, the relation between English and Spanish in both their academic and creative writing careers, the importance of emerging LGBTIQ voices in fiction, the immigrant women’s experience in the U.S., and issues related to women writer’s rights. The series was organized by HLBLL students Elena Chávez Goycochea, Mariana Romo-Carmona, and Nan Zheng.

CUNY: Reading Series “Dos + una: tres escritoras americanas”

¿De dónde somos y dónde estamos cuando escribimos? ¿Dónde, cuando nos leen? Somos algunas entre tantos que viven en español en la ciudad, escritoras americanas en Nueva York.

En esta segunda lectura del ciclo: una chilena y dos argentinas. O dos narradoras y una poeta. O tres escritoras: Silvina López Medin, Lina Meruane y Sylvia Molloy. 

En las próximas lecturas se irá multiplicando la procedencia de las voces, las tensiones, los recorridos. Los invitamos a escuchar, a leer, a discutir y a trazar mapas nuevos.

Segundo encuentro: 29 de marzo de 2016 6 PM. John Jay College, 524 West 59th Street, New York, NY 10019

***

Where are we from? Where are we when we are writing? And when we are being read? We are just a few among so many people living in Spanish in this city, American writers in New York.

In this second reading: one Chilean and two Argentines. Or two novelists and a poet. Or three writers: Silvina López Medin, Lina Meruane and Sylvia Molloy. 

In the upcoming readings the origin of the voices, tensions and trajectories will multiply. Join us to listen, read, discuss and draw up new maps.
