What’s Left of Macondo?

A lecture by Ericka Beckman, 
Associate Professor, 
Department of Hispanic and Portuguese Studies
University of Pennsylvania

Cien años de soledad
, by the Nobel laureate Gabriel García Márquez, is the best-known Latin American novel of the twentieth-century. The novel first appeared in Buenos Aires on May 30, 1967, published by Editorial Sudamericana.

In celebration of the 50th anniversary of its publication, Ericka Beckman will reflect on the relevance of Gabriel García Márquez’s fiction today. 

Professor Beckman, author of Capital Fictions: The Literature of Latin America’s Export Age, will consider how García Márquez’s novels, particularly Cien años de soledad, express the particular dynamics of Latin American histories, while at the same time providing insights into the recurring catastrophes of colonialism and capitalism.

The lecture will be in English
Free and open to the public
