Get excited for our Gilbert Lecture Series which is hosted by the English Department. It is a free lecture open to the public.
Interested in Latino studies?
Our first guest is Raúl Coronado (Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago) who focuses on Latina/o literary and cultural history “with an emphasis on rethinking the literature of the Americas in a transnational, hemispheric framework, focusing particularly on the U.S.-Mexico border.” Currently, he is working on a study of the historical emergence of queer Latina/o subjectivities.
He is the author of A World Not to Come: A History of 19th c. Latino Writing, Print Culture, and the Disenchantment of the World which will be published in November 2012.
