Dr. Lojo's first address will examine how recent Argentine historical fictions are attempting to recover the mutilated collective memory of Indigenous communities (who participated actively in the wars of independence) as co-founders of the nation - an idea erased from the Argentine imaginary by Julio Argentino Roca's successful offensive wars against the Indigenous communities of central and southern Argentina (1878-1885).

In both addresses, Dr. Lojo's will draw on her academic research as well as her insights as an award winning novelist.
