The Americas Archive: A Conversation

May 18, 2023 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Join UCLA English for a conversation featuring Carmen E. Lamas, Associate Professor of English and American Studies at the University of Virginia. Professor Lamas will be in conversation with UCLA English and Chicana/o Studies Professor Marissa López to discuss the temporal, geographic, ideological, and speculative archives that emerge from the study of nineteenth-century Latina/o texts and how these texts invite scholars to navigate and imagine different methodological approaches and archival formations. The talk will be followed by a Q & A moderated by Professor López.

Register here to attend. A light reception will follow the event.

Carmen E. Lamas is an Associate Professor of English and American Studies at the University of Virginia. Her book The Latino Continuum and the Nineteenth-Century Americas: Literature, Translation, and Historiography (Oxford 2021) explores nineteenth-century Latina/o history, literature, and translation from a hemispheric perspective. Her second book Irene Albar. Novela cubana (1885, 1886) por Eusebio Guiteras. Edición facsímil was published this Spring 2023 by Editorial Calambur (Valencia, Spain) and examines the trans-American and trans-Atlantic nature of nineteenth-century Latina/o lives and texts.
