Kawabata, la Escritora, el Filósofo Travesti, y el Pez
*Kawabata, The Female Writer, The Transvestite Philosopher, and The Fish

An event by Mario Bellatin, followed by a response by Professor Daniel Link

On Wednesday, January 15th, Northwestern will be hosting a public talk by Mario Bellatin, one of the most prolific, original, and acclaimed Latin American writers of recent decades. Bellatin’s experimental writings invite the public to question traditional ideas about literature, art, fiction, and reality, while breaking and transiting the borders between them.

*Conducted in Spanish with English translation

Reading Group

In preparation for this talk, we would like to invite faculty and students to join a reading group on Friday, January 10th, from 2-3:30pm, in the Comparative Literary Studies Seminar Room (Kresge 5-531), where we will be discussing Bellatin’s work.

If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to and we will be happy to share a link to the reading materials.
