Congratulations to our PhD student Valeria Mora Hernandez who has been named one of the Nanovic Institute's Graduate Fellows in European Studies for the coming academic year.
Carlos Jáuregui, Associate Professor of Spanish has released a new book titled Espectros y conjuras. Asedios a la cuestión colonial. The book revisits Derrida's notion of conjure (as exorcism, invocation and conspiracy) to speak of a series of texts that symbolically try to subjugate the “Other” to the order of writing, triggering a sort of return of the repressed (i.e., otherness, violence, horror-- exorcized by the text-- return as textual ruptures and anomalies).
