"He's Whispering Revolution to Me": Reading the Reader of Saramago's 'Historical' Novels

Sousa Book-sm.jpgLecture with Professor Ronald Sousa
University of North Carolina, Asheville

Friday, October 3, 2014
113 Folwell Hall

Ronald Sousa's new book On Emerging from Hyper-Nation (Purdue UP, scheduled for November release) explores the relationship that 1998 Nobel Laureate José Saramago's novels about Portuguese history seek to set up with their reader. Starting with his own reception of the novels, his study moves from analysis of reader liberation to re-induction of historical trauma to subject re-construction. Sousa will review the main lines of his exploration and then pose some of his own questions about it.
