Canadian Summer Lecture 2017: "Notes from Underground: Circulation, Evasion and Impasse in Canadian Urban Fiction"

 

Canadian Visiting- Professor Domenic A. Beneventi of Sherbrooke University gave a talk about recent works of Canadian fiction that stage the "underground" as a material reality of dispossession and poverty. He discussed how the city as a space of victimhood also becomes a space of agency, resistance and subterfuge.

The lecture was followed by a round of questions and a lively discussion.
