Spanish Studies, OSUN, and LAIS Program Present
Alicia Partnoy: On Testimony and Fiction
Wednesday, November 2, 2022
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm EDT/GMT-4
Alicia Partnoy is a poet, memoirist, scholar, and human rights activist. One of Argentina's 30,000 "disappeared", she was abducted from her home by secret police in 1977 and taken to a concentration camp where she was tortured, and where most of the other prisoners were killed. Her writings were smuggled out of prison and published anonymously in human rights journals. In this session we will discuss Partnoy's literary testimony of her disappearance and imprisonment, titled La escuelita
/The Little School
. Told in a series of tales that resound in memory like parables, La escuelita
is the proof of the resilience of the human spirit and the healing powers of art. Cosponsored by OSUN and LAIS.
This event will be held on Zoom in Spanish. Open to the OSUN Spanish-speaking community. To RSVP for this event, please email Prof. López-Gay at [email protected]
