  • SCLA – Six Artists Reflect on Creative Process

    Six artists make arbitrary lists as a starting point to generate visual and textual content and reflect on the creative process. The outcome is a series of disconcerting yet coherent sets of photographs and short statements.

    Their work responds to artist Seth Weiner’s presentation on how to experience process and produce expressive text-and-image content by artist Seth Weiner (2022-2023 Walker Cultural Leader in the Centre for Studies in Arts and Culture), and follows artist talks by Karin Di Bella, Amy Friend, and David Vivian at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts, Brock University.

  • International journalist offers interview tips to Spanish students

    Students in SPAN 1F90 welcomed Julio César Rivas, foreign correspondent to Canada with Agencia EFE, to their class Wednesday, March 16. Rivas shared his tips and techniques for effective interviews in preparation for interviews students will be doing with native Spanish speakers as a class project. Rivas shared from his experience of more than 30 years as a journalist in the Americas and Europe, where he has covered events including the armed conflicts in Guatemala and El Salvador, the Zapatista uprising in Mexico, and a broad range of economic, social, political and cultural affairs. In addition to working for Agencia EFE, the largest Spanish language newswire service, Rivas is also the co-founder of Lattin magazine, an online news site dedicated to the Hispanic population in Canada. Rivas is pictured offering pointers to students Lisa Carvalho and Kayla Hoyos Lewis, who will be interviewing their grandmothers for the project. The class will be sharing their completed projects in a presentation April 6 and Rivas will work with a student to publish their work in Lattin.

  • “Gender Treachery Against the State: The Political Function of Popular Film in the Fiction of Manuel Puig” Talk by Dr. Erin Redmond

    Redmond talk 15 March

    As part of the Diaspora Speaker Series

    Hosted by the Hispanic and Latin American Studies Program (Dept. of Modern Languages, Literatures & Cultures)

    Gender Treachery Against the State: The Political Function of Popular Film in the Fiction of Manuel Puig

    Talk by Dr. Erin Redmond

    15 March 2022

    Online -13:00pm – 14:15pm

    This is a virtual presentation.

    This is a virtual presentation. Please join us at: NEW LINK:,XyR7mI6NzEOUEd1_vBNozQ,O7AaaVuKoUSgoKTyb-wHJQ,yJVn4PTOh0WMUokBw-2UbA,Y4gnfNTxy0u2lFjnP-NADQ,zQp0u4_7E0K3wx2ATxrORg?mode=read&tenantId=76ae1115-1efc-4af2-a536-e2b2443af1a0

    This talk will focus on the ways in which alternative constructions of gender and sexuality emerge through dislocations of U.S. and European films to small-town Argentina in the 1930s and 1940s in the case of Traición and to the 1970s Buenos Aires prison cell in which most of Beso’s narrative unfolds. Although a number of critics have positioned homosexuality in Puig’s fiction as a form of rebellion against political authoritarianism, I argue that in keeping with Puig’s own views, these texts offer a more radical challenge to the heteronormative ideologies of both mass culture and the repressive state through their principal characters’ refusal of binary-based terms.

    Dr. Erin Redmond received her Ph.D. in Hispanic Literatures from the University of Texas at Austin in 2008. She completed her B.A. in Women’s Studies and History at the University of Toronto. Her research and teaching interests include questions of gender and sexuality in fiction and film from Argentina, Brazil and Cuba.

    L’impact du numérique : textes/images en littérature et dans les arts 

    Engaging with Digital Texts/Images in Literatures and the Arts 



    Les nouveaux outils numériques continuent de transformer la pensée des artistes et, ainsi que leur façon de s’engager dans la création. Au cours des dernières décennies, les avancées technologiques ont permis de concevoir et de développer de nouvelles pratiques en littérature et dans les arts, avec pour résultat d’innombrables créations innovantes. Les outils numériques rendent possible un meilleur accès aux textes littéraires et facilitent des interactions complexes entre la littérature et les autres arts. De même, les arts visuels et autres ont conçu de nouvelles intégrations du texte dans leurs réalisations. Ces nouvelles pratiques ont changé notre discours visuel et textuel. 


    New digital tools continue to transform the way artists and writers think about, engage with, and create works. In the last decades, advances in technology have facilitated the design and writing process, allowing the creation of countless virtual renditions of concepts or works. Digital tools have impacted the traditional literary world, opening access to a variety of digitized texts and enabling increased interactions with other art forms. In turn, visual and other creative arts have conceived new integrations of text within their medium, all of which has impacted and changed our visual and written discourse.
