Talk by Mary Louise Pratt  (New York University)

If English was good enough for Jesus... Monolinguism and mala fe.

Monday, March 11th, 2:30 PM in the Humanities Building 1008. 
 
Abstract: The well known "if English was good enough for Jesus..." joke offers a rare self-conscious glimpse of US society's craziness around language, and the religious and geopolitical entanglements involved.  This lecture will try to sort out some of that craziness, going back to Teddy Roosevelt's writings in the Kansas City Star (1917-19), and back further to the Tower of Babel, seemingly scheduled for reconstruction in some regions of the United States. Examples from contemporary language politics in the Andean region will help illuminate the enduring mutations of empire and coloniality in the contemporary Americas, and then we'll ask where as a society we can go from here.

Cosponsored by the Departments of Hispanic Languages and Literaratures, Cultural Analsys and Theory and the Humanities Institute

Film presentation and Q/A with Edgardo Dieleke & Julieta Vitullo

La forma exacta de las islas / The Exact Shape of the Islands

A film by Daniel Casabé y Edgardo Dieleke (2012)
 
 julieta Malvinas poster Exact shape small

In Prof. Firbas’ HUS 254 Latin America Today 
Monday April 1, 2013, Melville Library W4550 from 2.30 to 3.50 pm

The film starts with a home movie that documents the first travel of Julieta, a PhD student, into the Falkland Islands in 2006, where she accidentally meets two Argentine veterans of the Malvinas War of 1982. The movie follows successive travels in different temporalities and spaces, including the narratives of Darwin, Fogwill, Gamerro, as well as war testimonies and the declarations of islanders, Julia and the film directors. The result is a complex weave of voices, images and scarred memories: “there are two bites torn out of the heart of every one of us, and they are the exact shape of the islands”. It is through its many crossings that this marvelous and touching movie tries to find the shapes of those bites while searching for healing and hope.

Edgardo Dieleke (Ph.D Princeton), filmmaker and scriptwriter, teaches at NYU-Bs. As. Together with D. Casabé, he directed the films Cracks de nácar (2011) and La forma exacta de las islas.

Julieta Vitullo (Ph.D. Rutgers), co-writer and character of the film, is author of Las islas imaginadas. La Guerra de Malvinas en la literatura y el cine argentinos (Bs As: Corregidor, 2012).
