Event Details:

Join us for lunch with Lecturer Yosa Vidal at 12:30 PM in Pigott Hall Room 252 on 2/26/24. Yosa Vidal is a Chilean Writer and a Visiting Lecturer of Latin American Literature and Culture at Stanford University. She holds a Ph.D. from University of Oregon. Her scholarly work engages with the gap in the critical scholarship on resistance, historical memory, and trauma in the Southern Cone, and integrates fictional and non-fictional texts, expanding the notion of documentation and memory. As creative writer, she has published El Tarambana, (Tajamar 2013, Mármara 2016) a contemporary novela picaresca, set in the 1970s Chile that explores sexual identity and political memory; Los multipatópodos (Overol 2017) is a bestiary that describes species emerging from genetic mutations, and Vals chilote (Mantis 2022, Fondo de Cultura Económica 2022) set in Chiloé, is a novel about political language narrated through two main protagonists, who live each with a different communication technology: the radio and the typewriter.
