Dissident Biopoetics: A Conversation with Rubí Carreño


Join us for a conversation with Chilean literary and cultural critic Rubí Carreño about her recent book Av. Independencia: Literatura, música e ideas del Chile disidente and the vibrant biopoetics driving contemporary movements for social change.

Rubí Carreño is Assistant Professor of Literature at the Catholic University in Santiago, Chile, where she teaches literary theory and contemporary literary criticism. Her interdisciplinary work mobilizes upon both gender and memory studies to interpret different literary and musical traditions in Chile and Latin America more broadly. Along with her recent Av. Independencia, she has published Leche amarga: violencia y erotismo en la narrativa chilena (Bombal, Brunet, Donoso y Eltit); Memorias del nuevo siglo: jóvenes, trabajadores y artistas en la narrativa chilena del siglo XX; and Diamela Eltit: redes locales y redes globales (ed).

*The conversation will be in Spanish, translation will be provided
