Dr. Lojo's second address will examine the dialogue that Mansilla and Ocampo, who are part of an Argentine tradition of travelling, cosmopolitan, multilingual women writers, establish with different western cultures. Through analysis of their experiences of admiration and incomprehension of other cultures, Dr. Lojo will trace the development of specific individual and collective identities that are not reducible to European parameters.

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

Speakers:
  • María Rosa Lojo, Academic Director of the Centro de Estudios Críticos de Literatura Argentina (CECLA), Universidad del Salvador, Buenos Aires
