On the 1st of December the Spanish literature section of Ghent University organizes a meeting with the Argentine writer Selva Almada to discuss her chronicle Dead Girls, published in 2014.


Selva Almada (1973) is one of the most prominent voices in the current Latin American literary scene. Her work, which includes novels, poetry, short stories and chronicles, has been translated into several languages. During this meeting we will talk with Selva Almada about her celebrated chronicle Dead Girls (2014) and the literary and journalistic representation of gender violence in Argentina and Latin America. The meeting is part of the master’s course in contemporary Latin American literature, taught by dr. Jasper Vervaeke. It will be moderated by Eva Van Hoey, who is preparing a doctoral thesis on chronicles and gender violence in Latin America.


The activity is open to everyone and will take place in Spanish.
