Hispanic Studies (In)Opportune Interventions series talk

4:45 PM  - 6:00 PM
Monday Mar 6, 2017
Neill Hall (formerly Humanities Building) 401

Join Hispanic Studies for a talk by Professor Galo González on Hybrid Transnational Identities: The case of Two U. S. Latino Writers, Guillermo Gómez Peña and Héctor Tobar.

The talk will analyze features of contemporary U.S.-Latino transnational identities in the main characters of two distinctive works.  The authors, Guillermo Gómez-Peña (1955, Mexican born, Chicano writer) and Héctor Tobar (1963, U.S. born, Guatemalan ancestry) construct an aesthetic space in which protagonists are defined by their Latino hybrid transnational identities (U.S. and nation of origin). This “in-between” existence reflects the urban reality of the U.S. Latinos who, in recent decades, have left their land of origin as a result of civil wars, dictators, social and political repressions, and/or economic disparities. The talk will be in English.

This event is for: Alumni, Students, Staff, Faculty, Parents and Families and Public

Sponsored By: Spanish & Portuguese
