A movement bringing art and literature together in revolutionary new ways to promote civic agency and engagement with the humanities has made its way to Rhodes and Memphis by way of a Spanish course.
Prof. Pettinaroli studies the literatures of the Early Modern Hispanic world in a comparative context, focusing on the elaboration of notions of space and place, and literary history. Her work interrogates placemaking as the literary forum to debate competing visions of globality. Pettinaroli′s scholarship has been supported by the Spanish Ministry of Education Program for Cultural Cooperation, the University of Virginia′s School of Arts and Sciences, the Society of Fellows, and Rhodes College.
Dr. Elizabeth Pettinaroli has been named to the jury who will select this year’s winner of The Miguel de Cervantes Prize.
Each Saturday from 11 a.m. to noon in the Barret Library on campus, Rhodes students are hosting La Hora de Cuentos (Story Time).
Troubled Waters: Rivers in Latin American Imagination, edited by Dr. Elizabeth Pettinaroli was published in April by University of Minnesota Press as part of its influential Hispanic Issues Online series.
