Speaker: Adalberto Müller
Date: June 4, 2PM EST.
Title: “From South of the Border: Dickinson Latina”

Abstract: In his article “Dickinson Latina,” Müller views Dickinson through the lenses of "foreignhood" and translation. He focuses on poems that involve Spanish and Portuguese words and worlds. Sometimes a small detail, like the cochineal in "A route of Evanescence" or a mention of the mines of Bolivia, opens up a global perspective that disseminates the poem’s circumference.
