The performance is about memory, but even more so, it is about relationship between performer, audience member, and author.

Lecture | Tricky Translations: Shakespeare's "Nachreife" in Contemporary Serial TV Drama


Using the critical tropes developed by Walter Benjamin in his thoughts on translation, this lecture will explore issues of translatability regarding the resurfacing of Shakespearean Drama in contemporary serial TV. How does Hamlet resurface in Westworld? What does it mean for the image of the first female president that, in House of Cards, Claire Underwood should take her self-fashioning from Lady Macbeth's playbook? What notion of reparation is at issue, if we think about Elizabeth Keane's resignation in Homeland in terms of the banishment of Queen Margaret at the end of Richard III? Speaker Elisabeth Bronfen is Professor of English and American Studies at the University of Zurich.

Opening Reception | Saga: The Struggles of Undocumented Immigrants and Asylum Seekers


Guadalupe Maravilla is a NY-based artist hailing from El Salvador, whose interdisciplinary practice bridges the disciplines of drawing, installation, and performance. With Saga, Maravilla presents a new body of work that reflects on the struggles of undocumented immigrants and asylum seekers, particularly in the context of repressive US policy. Maravilla, who immigrated to the States alone as a child from El Salvador to escape civil war, has devoted his artistic practice to articulating his own migration story, and to shaping spaces of healing through teaching, activism, and collective ritual. Drawing heavily on autobiography, Saga is conceived as an epic, personal account.

Author Reading | The Little Old Lady Killer: The Sensationalized Crimes of Mexico’s First Female Serial Killer


The surprising true story of Mexico’s hunt, arrest, and conviction of its first female serial killer, Juana Barraza Samperio, is told through ten years of research and one of the only interviews that Barraza Samperio has given while in prison. Susana Vargas Cervantes deconstructs this story, focusing on the complex gendered aspects of the case and how Barraza Samperio—with her “manly” features and strength, her career as a masked wrestler in lucha libre, and her violent crimes—disrupted traditional narratives about gender, criminality, and victimhood in the popular imagination.
