Arts and Humanities Colloquium: Crossroads: Personal and Social Stories in Laura Restrepo’s Leopard in the Sun

Lourdes Rojas-Paiewonsky, Charles A. Dana Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures and Africana and Latin American Studies presents Crossroads: Personal and Social Stories in Laura Restrepo’s Leopard in the Sun

¨Leopard in the Sun,(1993) explores the history and the story of two powerful Guajira mafia groups, as forerunners of the famous drug cartels in Colombia in the 1980's.  In a novel that can be read as a soap-opera on one level, and as a journalistic document on another, Restrepo unveils the absurdity, and dehumanizing effects of the world of violence  lived by those who inhabit Colombia's north coast. 

Refreshments available 4:00-4:15 PM; lecture begins at 4:15 PM. All are welcome.
