Zengierski Family Lectures in Spanish Literature and Culture, Spring 2021

Federico García Lorca. Huerta de San Vicente, Granada.

Federico García Lorca. Huerta de San Vicente, Granada

 

This four-part series of presentations examines various aspects of the poet and playwright Federico García Lorca (1898-1936), his contemporaries, and his legacy. Born in the Spanish province of Granada, Lorca combines a championing of the socially marginalized, avant-garde experimentation, and reworking of Andalusian and Roma traditions such as flamenco. Assassinated near the start of the Spanish Civil War, his remains have never been found, putting him at the center of unresolved historical memory issues.

Moderated by Elizabeth Scarlett, Professor of Spanish
Department of Romance Languages and Literatures
