Of Monsters and Men: Speculative Fiction and Literary Criticism in the Era of #MeToo

Presented by the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program (LACS), Antoinette Hertel, professor of Spanish at Saint Joseph’s College, examines how Dominican-American writer Junot Díaz employs speculative writing in his portrayal and interrogation of masculinities and race. Hertel will discuss how recent revelations made by Díaz in The New Yorker and accusations against him by several women (May 2018) might impact scholarly readings and class discussions of his work.

 

The Joseph G. Astman Cultural Events are presented in loving memory of Dr. Joseph G. Astman, founder of the Hofstra Cultural Center. Dr. Astman was a humanist, cultural comparatist and international scholar.
