Professor to Discuss Sabbatical Research

Dr. Camila Bari de Lopez, associate professor of Spanish at Westminster College, will present "Between Literary Criticism and Sociology: What Literature Can Contribute to Cultural History" at Faculty Forum Wednesday, April 5, at 11:45 a.m. in the Sebastian Mueller Theater located in the McKelvey Campus Center.

 "During my sabbatical leave I pursued my quest for the complete list of works at the personal library of the Venezuelan novelist, thinker, and physician Manuel Diaz Rodriguez, whose works I have been studying for a long time," Lopez said.  "He published at the beginning of the 19th century and I was trying to confirm his connections with a series of European authors of the time.  My intention was to find support for a redefinition of Latin American Modernism as part of the same European and Anglo-American movement.  For that purpose, I prepared an annotated edition of one of Diaz Rodriguez' main essays on Modernism, which I have already sent out for publication."

 Lopez, who has been with Westminster College since 1997, earned her undergraduate degree from the Universidad Nacional de Cuyo in Argentina and her Ph.D. from the University of Albany.

Faculty Forum, established in 1990, serves as a venue for the exchange of ideas and information among Westminster College faculty.  Speakers present their research, teaching ideas, lectures, performances, special programs, and uses of technology to keep faculty informed about the work of colleagues from many disciplines.

 The event is free and open to the public.  Contact Lopez at (724) 946-7258 or e-mail baridec@westminster.edu for more information.
