Event Description

En esta charla se analiza la trayectoria del editor Jorge Herralde y el proyecto y las políticas editoriales de la editorial Anagrama, que él funda en Barcelona, en 1969. Dos momentos claves en la historia de la editorial – primero, su rol como agente político durante el periodo de la transición española y, luego, el combate por la defensa de la edición independiente en los años noventa y dos mil – estructuran la exposición. En el transcurso de la charla, se discuten las políticas editoriales de la casa barcelonesa en esas dos coyunturas y el papel histórico que desempeñaron en la consolidación de una cierta idea de la edición independiente dentro ámbito español e hispanoamericano.
