Join us for a discussion of Dr. Shawn McDaniel's newest book, Centenary Subjects: Race, Reason, and Rupture in the Americas, on the transformative work of young arielista writers, radicals, pedagogues, prophets, and politicians in early 20th century Latin America.
SHAWN McDANIEL is Assistant Professor of American Studies and Ethnicity at USC. Intersecting Caribbean, Latin American, and Latinx literary and cultural studies and intellectual history, his research explores subjectivity, power, aesthetics, modernism, race, gender, sexuality, and dissidence in print, visual, and sonic cultures of the Americas from the nineteenth century to the present.
He will be in conversation with JUAN POBLETE, Professor of Latin/o American Literature and Cultural Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Dr. Poblete is the author of Hacia una historia de la lectura y la pedagogía literaria en América Latina (2019), La Escritura de Pedro Lemebel como proyecto cultural y político, (2019), and Literatura chilena del siglo XIX: entre públicos lectores y figuras autoriales (2003); editor of New Approaches to Latin American Studies: Culture and Power (2018) and Critical Latin American and Latino Studies (2003); and co-editor of multiple volumes on Latin American culture.
