Gendering Migration in the Hispanic World H. Rosi Song Bryn Mawr College

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 12:45-2:10 p.m. The Helene Fortunoff Theater Monroe Lecture Center, California Avenue, South Campus Spain is one of the entry points to “Fortress Europe,� and a destination for migratory movements across the European continent and the Mediterranean. Recent migration to Spain has been largely female, a fact that raises questions about notions of traditional family dynamics, legislation around migration, and gendered representations of the migrant experience in popular culture. H. Rosi Song is associate professor of Spanish at Bryn Mawr College and the author of Lost in Transition: Constructing Memory in Contemporary Spain (2016). She is also the co-editor of Towards a Cultural Archive of la Movida: Back to the Future (2013), and Traces of Contamination: Unearthing Francoist Legacy in Contemporary Spanish Discourse (2005). She has published extensively on contemporary Spanish culture and literature, Iberian and Latin American detective fiction, and migration. Convened by Pepa Anastasio, Chair and Professor of Romance Languages and Literatures
