Joy Castro, Willa Cather Professor of English and Ethnic Studies at the University of Nebraska, and Rhi Johnson, a visiting scholar from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, will discuss what we—in today’s age of relentless image making and self-portraiture—can learn about the representation of femininity from late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century Spanish and Hispanophone artists and writers.

No neat line divides visual art from literature: artists often paint stories, and authors frequently use visual motifs to imbue their texts with a culture’s expectations—or to dispute those expectations. In so doing, both kinds of makers record and rewrite the world.

Admission is free.
