Symposium in Hispanic Studies

Spanish Symposium

The graduate program in Modern Languages and Literatures recently held its first annual Graduate Symposium, "Quixotic Legacies: The Art of engaño in the Hispanic World (1615-2015)." The event took place Saturday, February 21, 2015. 

This year's inaugural symposium sought to explore the ways in which Iberian and Latin American writers, filmmakers, and artists give expression to the theme of deception, and the discussion included such topics as fictitious lives, perception of reality, and notions of truth. The keynote address was provided by Dr. Nathalie Bouzaglo, of Northwestern University. Dr. Bouzaglo specializes in 19th and 20th century Latin American Literature, with an emphasis on the modern narratives of nation building and the relationship between law, literature and ethics.
