Join us on Friday, December 8, 3:30-5:00 PM in 103 Chancellor Green for the third invited guest lecture of the “Smells, Sounds, and Textures of Iberian Modernity” talk series, entitled “The Harmonious al-Andalus”. Our invited guest speaker, Eric Calderwood, is Associate Professor in Comparative and World Literature at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. Drawing from his recent book entitled On Earth or in Poems: The Many Lives of al-Andalus, he will speak to the connection between art, music, and the legacy of Al-Andalus in Moroccan contemporary culture. We will have a few extra copies of his book which we will be offering to the first graduate students to attend the talk.
