LACS welcomes Sergio Delgado Moya (University of Chicago, Romance Languages & Literatures) for a lunch-time lecture.  Food will be served at the event.

The way in which the senses operate when faced with the facts of violence is the subject of Dr. Moya's forthcoming book, A Nervous Archive.  In this lecture Dr. Moya will discuss his book research, exploring the nature of sensationalism as an archive of violence that falls on the most marginalized segments of society, the ones marked most viciously by gender and class, by race and ethnicity, by dispossession, and by sexuality. He will draw on the work of writers, filmmakers, journalists, and artists from Mexico, Chile, Colombia, and the United States.
