Silvia Spitta, Professor for Spanish and Comparative Literature in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Dartmouth College, will lecture on and discuss the subject and theses of her book Misplaced Objects (2009). The book is about the movement of objects between Europe and the Americas since 1492. A particular focus is its considerations on the cult round the Holy Virgin of Guadalupe and its transference to the United States. Using this example, the book presents and discusses processes of transculturation.
Workshop’s language: Spanish.
