Dear Colleagues,


Please join the Modernism Seminar of the Mahindra Humanities Center at
Harvard on Wednesday, February 22, at 6:00 p.m. to hear Maria del Pilar
Blanco (University of Oxford) speak on:


*"Science and the Literary Histories of Spanish American Modernismo"*


The presentation will take place in the Mahindra Humanities Center, Barker
133.


*María del Pilar Blanco* is Associate Professor of Spanish American
Literature and Fellow in Spanish at the University of Oxford. She is the
author of *Ghost-Watching American Modernity: Haunting, Landscape, and the
Hemispheric Imagination *(Fordham 2012), and co-editor, with Esther Peeren,
of *The Spectralities Reader: Ghosts and Haunting in Contemporary Cultural
Theory *(Bloomsbury 2013) and *Popular Ghosts: The Haunted Spaces of
Everyday Culture *(Continuum 2010). She is currently at work on the edition
of *The Oxford Critical and Cultural History of Global Modernist Magazines,
vol. 1: South America, Central America, and the Caribbean*, and is also at
work on her second monograph, *Modernist Laboratories: Science and the
Poetics of Progress in Spanish America, 1870-1910*.


There is free parking near the HHC at the Broadway Garage, on Felton
between Broadway and Cambridge Street. Just tell the attendant that you're
participating in an event at the HHC. Normally the attendant is welcoming,
as long as it's after 5:00 p.m., even if we are erroneously not on the good
list.


We hope you'll be able to attend the session, which, as always, includes
discussion after the presentation.
