Report on second clase-conferencia, Javeriana

Last week, Claire was invited to give a talk to students at the  Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia, as a follow-up event to her earlier talk with the class, held on Friday 9 November last year. The class was led by Jaime Alejandro Rodríguez, Profesor Titular del Departamento de Literatura. As well as his role of university teacher, Jaime Alejandro will be known to many Latamcyber readers as the author of the groundbreaking hypertext novels, Gabriella infinita and Golpe de gracia.

The class took the form of an informal interview, during which Claire was asked firstly regarding her early research and first steps into digital culture. Subsequently, the questions focused on Claire and Thea’s recent joint-authored volume with Routledge, looking in particular at the six discourses structuring the book. Finally, the questions ended on issues of net localities and globalization, as the class debated ways in which users, particularly via social media, re-affirm place-based affiliations online.

Claire and Jaime Alejandro hope to organize a further event to take place over the summer in Bogotá. We’ll make sure to keep you posted!
