Dr. Anna Casas-Aguilar (UBC, Vancouver British Columbia) will talk on “The Tourist as the Other in Spain (1960-2018).” She will explore the multiple ways in which visual culture in Spain has represented tourists, arguing that they have been portrayed as a fundamental Other in a country whose Franco-era concepts of nation and region were reinforced as well as continue to be reformulated to this day.

International Symposium / Simposio Internacional “Poetry of the Transition” will take place on campus Monday Feb. 3 and Tuesday Feb 4.

The event is sponsored by our Department and other Departments in the School of Liberal Arts and by a Spanish government sponsored research group. Sigma Delta Pi members are highly encouraged to attend.

The conference presentations will focus on poetry of the Transition period in Spain, from 1975 through the socialist governments of Felipe González (1975-1996).

Invited poet Luis Muñoz will offer a reading of his work on Tuesday February 4, at 3:30 pm. Prof. Muñoz is a native of Granada, Spain. He holds a PhD in Literature from the University of Granada. His poetic work up to 2005 is also gathered in the book Limpiar pescado. Poesía reunida 1991-2005 (2005). A bilingual selection of his poems, From Behind What Lanscape. New and Selected Poems, translated by Curtis Bauer and with a foreword by Ilya Kaminsky, was published in 2015. He teaches at the University of Iowa, where he directs the MFA in Spanish Creative Writing Program. Translations of his works will be read by Cecily Gordon Parker, a poet and professor in the Texas State Creative Writing program.
