At 4 p.m. on Wed., Nov. 9, Dr. David Dalton of UNC-C will give the Fall McMahon Distinguished Lecture in SciTech Room C309. It will be titled "Damián MIravete’s “Soñarán en el jardín” (They will dream in the garden) and Carlos Carrera and Sabina Berman’s Backyard/El traspatio.
This presentation looks at how different writers and cineasts in Mexico have used ideas and tropes from science fiction and horror to speak out against violence against women throughout the country. Building on the term "robo sacer," Dalton theorizes a means through which characters in both of these works use technology to call into question those assumptions that have historically relegated women to the periphery.
This lecture will also be livestreamed via Webex (see information below). Faculty interested in using the lecture for pedagogical purposes should contact Ms. Lily Johnson at email@example.com for a copy of the video recording.
