Report on clase-conferencia at Javeriana

A few days ago Claire was invited to give a clase-conferencia at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia. Held on Friday 9 November, the class formed part of the course, ‘Literatura Latinoamericana Reciente’ run by Jaime Alejandro Rodríguez, Profesor Titular del Departamento de Literatura, for the undergraduate degree in Estudios Literarios at that university.

The students had first read and prepared an extract from Claire and Thea’s 2007 edited volume, Latin American Cyberculture and Cyberliterature in advance of the class. Two students, Daniel Roberto Granja Hidrobo and Danny Mauricio Londoño Diaz, then posed a series of questions for discussion. These ranged from:

  • The new cultural experiences associated with hypertext, particularly as these affect the book as object
  • The development of cyberliterature in a Latin American context
  • The potentials for the collective participation in works on the internet
  • The roles of the author and reader in hypermedia novels

Also participating in the class were two teachers from the Javeriana, Carlos Pacheco y Luz Marina Rivas, who contributed to the discussion and, in the case of Carlos, shared memories of their own visits to Liverpool in the past!
