Speaker: Daniel Aguirre-Oteiza (Harvard)
Cosponsored with the Department of Spanish and Portuguese
Daniel Aguirre-Oteiza, Associate Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures at Harvard University, is author of This Ghostly Poetry: History and Memory of Exiled Spanish Republican Poets (2020); El canto de la desaparición: Memoria, historia y testimonio en la poesía de Antonio Gamoneda (2015); and El salto a lo desconocido: yo lírico y negatividad dialéctica en la poesía de la modernidad (2013). His research focuses on nineteenth- and twentieth-century Spanish literature, literary history, literary translation, and cultural studies, with special emphasis on the tensions between poetics and politics since the emergence of modernity. His new book project, “(In)Translating: Poetry and Politics of Identity in 21st-Century Spain,” asks how poetry translation can resist exclusionary identity building discourses in the present.
