Post-Magical Realist Worlds research group meeting

We would like to invite you to the coming meeting of the CCLA Post-Magical Realist Worlds research group on the topic:
‘Responses to Magic Realism and Literature (2020), Warnes and Sasser’ that will take place August 25, 2021, at 1:30 pm EST (for time zones and links please scroll below). The meeting will be held online via Zoom (link below) and led by Gabriel Chin who prepared the meeting and the topic. Please, read the following and join us.


The volume Magic Realism and Literature, part of the Cambridge UP series ‘Cambridge Critical Concepts’, takes as its aim ‘to extend our understanding of what magical realism is, where it has come from, how it has developed, and what it does’ (8).

With a wide scope ranging across Magic Realism’s origins, development, and applications, the book pursues an all-encompassing survey of the field and the current state of its study in literature.

A member of our own Post-Magical Realist Worlds group has reviewed the text as below.

We’d like to invite you to read this book which proposes to survey the entire breadth of our chosen area of study, and respond, either to the text as a whole, a chosen chapter or extract from within, or to the thoughts offered in review of the text. As we know our members vary in disciplinary background and training, we’d like to encourage responses, both from those who will consider Magic Realism and Literature to be their home turf, and those who come to Magic Realism from completely different fields with differing presuppositions and borders. Join the discussion or just come to listen in! 

CCLA/ACLC is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
