CAMD Scholar Presentation by Emiliano Cáceres Manzano ’22

Exploring ways that literary representations of Latin America intertwine with the continent’s history of colonialism, Emiliano Cáceres Manzano traces the origins of the term “magical realism” and analyzes the uses of the genre through postcolonial and psychological lenses. By asking whether magical realism replicates or dismantles colonial power structures—or whether it lies somewhere in between—this project makes a case for literature as essential to engaging with and understanding the continent’s complicated history.

Free and open to the public.
