Universitat de Barcelona
c/ Montalegre 6 - 08001 Barcelona
Virginia Maria Vasconcelos Leal, researcher at GELBC and lecturer in literature theory at the University of Brasília, offers the conference "Cíntia Moscovich. Cuestiones de género". Moscovich is a very unique writer on the Brazilian scene that allows us to think about how tensions around gender and sexuality work in the Brazilian literary field. An author of novels and stories dealing with issues such as lesbianism, corporeality or her own Jewish roots, has published, amongst others, Reino das Cebolas (1996), Duas iguais (1999) or Anotaçoões durante o incêndio (1998). This activity is part of the cycle No només Clarice Lispector, coordinated by Estudis Gallecs i Portuguesos, the MA in Latin American Studies (UB), ADHUC, and the Centro Cultural do Brasil em Barcelona. Open attendance.
