Erika Almenara believes José Carlos Aguero and Claudia Salazar used unique narrative styles to affect the way readers view the violent conflict that left nearly 70,000 people dead in Peru in the 1980s.
The University of
Arkansas professor will discuss her views on Jan. 20 as part of the
school’s Humanities Faculty Colloquium Series. She is scheduled to
speak at 4 p.m. at 319 Old Main in Fayetteville.
speech is entitled "Towards a Conceptualization of Memory after
the Destruction of the Self: Sobre el don de perdonar by José Carlos
Aguero and Blood of the Dawn by Claudia Salazar." In it, she
looks at the deadly conflict between Peru and the Shining Path, a
Communist militant group, and argues that the writers deconstructed
the way the conflict is remembered, both historically and culturally.
Almenara teaches in the university's World Languages and Cultures department. Her talk is open to faculty members and graduate students.
