Home / Mexican Studies Research Collective: Work-In-Progress Workshop with Olivia Cosentino and Dustin Dill
March 09, 2023 2:00 PMOther
This work-in-progress workshop by the Mexican Studies Research Collective will feature Tulane University Zemurray-Stone Post-Doctoral Fellow Dr. Olivia Cosentino, and Dustin Dill. Participants can register for the Zoom workshop. One week prior (3/2), attendees will receive Cosentino’s text, “Angélica María’s alegría: Stardom and Idealized Youth in 1960s Mexico,” part of her monograph-in-progress, Starscapes: Youth, Modernity, and Media in Mexico. Dr. Paul Julian Smith (CUNY) will respond before feedback and conversation open up to the audience.
Dr. Dustin Dill will discuss his book proposal, “The Mexican Experimental in the Contemporary Novel and Film.” Intersectional feminism, anti-racism, gender equality, and Indigenous rights outline his analysis of novels from Marisol Ceh Moo, Cristina Rivera Garza, Verónica Gerber Bicecci, and Mario Bellatin, along with films by María Novaro, Pedro González-Rubio, Pepe Perruccio, Camila Balzaretti, Lorena Barrera and Mario Morales Rubí. Critical theory by Rosa Pu Tzunz, Kimberlé Crenshaw, Irmgard Emmelhainz, Jesse Lerner, and Rita González form the foundation of what could be considered experimental in the Mexican novel and film today. Finally, Dr. Dill will suggest that the book considers the Black Lives Matter Movement and Mexican solidarity in novel-writing, filmmaking, protest, and activism.
This event is sponsored by Mexican Studies Research Collective.
