In "Figuraciones Literarias de las fiesta comunales en tres novelas Latinoamericanas - Mexico, Andes, y el Caribe" ("Literary figurations of communal fiestas in three Latin American novels"), Mildred Lopez-Escudero analyzes three novels which depict communal fiestas where people share food, play music, and dance. These events are not only part of their identity but are also important moments in their lives to vent problems inside their communities (violence, status quo, oppression). These fiestas can be used as a moment to subvert the status quo and/or make a political statement and critique of the power dynamics between the different social classes. Join the conversation as Mildred Lopez-Escudero and Emilia Soriano lead a dialogue on the ways which music helps us resist, cope, celebrate and grow! Co-sponsored by CAB
