Literary Histories and Cultural Circulation: A Brazilian Perspective
21st November at 3 p.m. G02 Brookfield Health Sciences Complex
Jose Luis Jobin from the Universidade Federal Fluminense (Brazil) will give a talk entitled: Literary Histories and Cultural Circulation: A Brazilian Perspective.
After presenting one of the perspectives relating to the European derivation of Latin literature and culture, we will then consider the issue of national affiliation, seeking to highlight certain aspects of the language and circumstances in which the unitary aspiration of the national, in its different manifestations, came into existence. Then we will show some of the many answers given (in Brazil and Latin America) to the question: How does a given literary or cultural element, with an assumed origin in a given context, insert itself in another context?
