I am pleased to announce the visit of the Colombian writer to the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Colorado College. She’ll offer a talk entitled, “Feminine and ethnic approaches to Afuera crece un mundo” on November 1 at 2 pm at the Max Kade Theater and will share with the students of block 3. You are cordially invited!

In Afuera crece un mundo we are taken back to the 1840s in Colombia were several Maroons fight the abolition of slavery. Fernandez’s novel rescues Nay from the pages of Maria by Jorge Isaacs. This time she is the protagonist and narrator of her story and subverts the imaginary we have built on the black slave woman.
