Post-Magical Realist Worlds research group meeting
The CCLA research group Post-Magical Realist Worlds invites to the meeting on November 16th, 10 am EST.
This meeting of the Post Magical Realist Worlds research group is dedicated to a discussion on Delia Ungureanu’s From Paris to Tlön: Surrealism as World Literature (2018), with emphasis on Jorge Luis Borges’ role in bridging between Surrealism and Magical Realism through his ‘metaphysical fantasies.’ Participants are recommended to take a look at two of Borges’ seminal short stories prior to the meeting: “Tlön, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius” (1940) and “Pierre Menard, Author of the Quixote” (1939). But no prior knowledge of the texts or books is necessary to participate in the discussion of relations between surrealism and magical realism.
Our presenter will be Kurosh Amoui Kalareh, PhD (ABD) YorkU.
