Department of Spanish faculty member to present next Research in Progress Seminar

As a part of the Women and Gender Studies and the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women Research in Progress Seminar Series, Jacqueline C. Nanfito, associate professor of Spanish, will present her current research, “Marjorie Agosin: The Poetics of Memory and Identity.”

Agosín, a Chilean poet, writer and human rights activist, writes in her native Spanish, forging a space where she can escape the feelings of displacement and uprootedness she experienced living as a self-exiled Latin American Jewish writer in Boston, where she teaches at Wellesley College.

The event will take place Friday, April 4, from noon to 2 p.m. in the Flora Stone Mather Center for Women Conference Room, located on the third floor of the Thwing Center.

This event is open to faculty and graduate students, and lunch will be provided.

RSVP online by Monday, March 31, to attend.
