Bruno Bosteels is Professor of Romance Studies at Cornell University. He is the author of many books published in the US with presses such as Duke and Verso, including Badiou and Politics (Duke University Press, 2011); and The Actuality of Communism (Verso, 2011). He is currently preparing two new books, Marx and Freud in Latin America and After Borges: Literature and Antiphilosophy. Professor Bosteels is a leading international scholar in critical and theoretical approaches to Latin American literatures and cultures, as well as one of the foremost progressive political thinkers in his field. His presentation will use a theoretical lens to examine the post-revolutionary Cuban film by Tomás Gutiérrez Alea, Memorias del subdesarrollo. Please note that for anyone who would like to see it in advance, the film is on two-hour reserve in the Language Lab on the 4th floor of Newcomb Hall.
