"Pancho Villa, el (anti)héroe revolucionario de la cinematografía mexicana y estadounidense," by Fernando Fabio Sánchez, Ph.D. Please note: Presentation will be in Spanish.
Sánchez was born in Torreón, México and is an assistant professor of Latin-American Literature at Portland State University. He specializes in 20th- and 21st-century Latin American literature, culture, and film, with an emphasis on Mexico. His current research focuses on the relationship between modernity and modes of representation in literature, painting, photography, film, and mass media. In his forthcoming book, Artful Assassins: Murder as Art in Modern Mexico (Vanderbilt University Press), Sánchez analyzes the interplay between crime, nation, and art in post-revolutionary Mexico.
Sánchez is also an accomplished poet and author of fiction. His collection of short stories, De la escritura a la evidencia. Siete historias (seudo)policiales, was published this year by Universidad Autónoma de Coahuila.
* From 5:30-6:10, Sánchez will discuss his short story that treats femicides in Juárez, “Lilith,” from De la escritura a la evidencia. Siete historias (seudo)policiales with interested students and faculty. The text can be found in Google Books or at http://web.pdx.edu/~ffs/, click on the Fiction tab.
