The 2013 David Vilaseca Memorial Lecture
Dr Carrie Hamilton (Roehampton) – Politics and Generosity: History and the Work of David Vilaseca
The lecture will engage with the academic work of David Vilaseca (1964-2010) which offers a series of radical interventions in Hispanic studies, queer theory and critical theory through close readings of twentieth-century autobiography, as well as fiction and films in Spanish and Catalan. The analyses will explore aspects of Vilaseca’s important intellectual legacy within and beyond his own writing.
