An Evening with Francisco Goldman

October 18th, 2016
6:00 - 7:00 PM

Location
Rogers Memorial Chapel

As part of Forum Tulane, an initiative designed to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and intellectual exploration through a university-wide conversation about a common theme which this year is Power, novelist and journalist Francisco Goldman will discuss his experiences and thoughts on the theme.

Francisco Goldman is the author of four novels, two books of non-fiction, and many articles for publications such as Harper’s and The New Yorker. His non-fiction book, The Art of Political Murder (2008), explored the case of the 1998 murder of a Guatemalan Roman Catholic Bishop and human rights activist, Juan Gerardi. His 2014 memoir, The Interior Circuit: A Mexico City Chronicle, is partly about Mexico’s current crisis. After publishing his first short-story in Esquire in the 1980s, Goldman began to write journalism from Central America for that and other magazines. His work is deeply informed by his experience of the Americas. An experienced and acute observer of a part of the world deeply influenced by the United States, Goldman will offer a global perspective on this year’s Forum Tulane theme: Power.

Sponsored by the English Department, The Department of Spanish and Portuguese, Forum Tulane, the Stone Center for Latin American Studies, the Center for Global Education, and the School of Liberal Arts.
