Department of Portuguese and Center for Portuguese Studies and Culture present "The gaze as desire in A Cup of Rage, by Raduan Nassar", a lecture by the Helio and Amelia Pedroso/Luso American Endowed Chair in Portuguese Studies, Prof. Sérgio Paulo Guimarães de Sousa.

Abstract: Like few authors, Raduan Nassar builds up narratives ruled by a noteworthy expressive merit based on an aestheticization of desire. In Um Copo de Cólera (A Cup of Rage), this aestheticization arguably manifests itself as a scopic drive.

Thursday, November 12, 2015 – 5 pm

This talk will be in Portuguese.
Refreshments will be served.
All are welcome.
