War and Representation in the Brazilian sertão: João Guimarães Rosa and Glauber Rocha
Wednesday, February 10, 3-4:30 pm. Melville Library, Room N3060.

Glauber Rocha's images of war refer at the same time to civil war in Canudos (1896-1897), especially as depicted by Euclides da Cunha in Os Sertões (1902), and to conflicts between the cangaceiros and the military from 1920 to 1937. In this talk we will discuss the essential role that João Guimarães Rosa’s novel Grande Sertão: Veredas (1956) plays in understanding Rocha's narrative aesthetics.

“Genealogy, Mobility, and Family History in the Anglo-Hispanic Atlantic”
Wed Sept 23 (NEW DATE) @ 1pm in Melville Library N3060
Three lives intersected by the Atlantic and by the shifting relations between the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Anglophone and Hispanophone worlds: Antonio Agacio, Jesusa Alfau de Solalinde and James Hooper. Three lives with varying visibility in the official records that capture their journeys across national, imperial and linguistic borders. Three lives whose resonances are not to be found in the published works of scholars, but in the ephemeral, digital world of newspaper archives, randomly digitized manuscripts and family historians. Locating its inquiry in the specific routes and encounters of the Anglo-Hispanic Atlantic, this paper asks to what extent the booming, largely digital world of family history can model new modes of inquiry for cultural scholars seeking to understand the lives and works of those whose place in the canon or the archive is fragile, contested, or even non-existent.
One of our advanced graduate students in our Department will present his dissertation research in the prestigious Provost's Graduate Student Lecture Series. Congratulations, Christian!

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.

La forma exacta de las islas / The Exact Shape of the Islands
A film by Daniel Casabé y Edgardo Dieleke (2012)
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).
