Thursday, April 30, 7 pm, Community Meeting Room, Main Library

What happens when we combine art and sport, when we think of literature as a kind of competition? In this talk, Professor John Alba Cutler illuminates the importance of competition and cultural prizes to the history of US Latino literature, from fiction writing competitions in the early Spanish-language press to Junot Díaz's Pulitzer Prize in 2008. While we tend to think of competition as a zero-sum endeavor, Cutler argues that in fact it has served as the basis for important moments of cultural solidarity. Presented as part of the Evanston Northwestern Humanities Lectures series.
