Ivonne Saed Leads Literary Seminar on Mexican Revolution

English faculty Ivonne Saed will lead a seminar titled The Mexican Revolution: Rulfo, Azuela & Fuentes, part of the Literary Arts Delve seminar series, in January 2014.

Delve Readers Seminars engages readers in exploring challenging books in lively discussion-based seminars led by an experienced scholar. The Delve series is offered through Literary Arts, a nonprofit literary center serving Oregon's readers and writers through programs including Portland Arts & Lectures, one of the country's largest lecture series.

In this seminar, Saed will lead participants in an exploration of fiction by three celebrated Mexican writers—Juan Rulfo, Mariano Azuela and Carlos Fuentes—who address issues of identity related to the Mexican Revolution era in very different ways, using narrative techniques that go from magical realism to postmodern multiple perspective.

Ivonne Saed teaches Latin American Literature for the Department of English at Marylhurst University. Her novel Triple crónica de un nombre (Triple Chronicle of a Name) won the Juan Rulfo National Award for First Novel in Mexico.
