Alicia Kozameh
gave two lectures out-of-state during the month of March.

On Wednesday March 2, 2016 she spoke at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. Her talk, titled “Reading History through Fiction”, centered on how fiction has the potential to represent history as effectively as direct testimonies. The event was sponsored by the Ohanessian Chair, of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese Studies and the Human Rights Program.

At a commemoration for the 20th Annual Spanish and Latin American Colloquium at the University of Ohio, Athens, Kozameh lectured about teaching creative writing during a colloquium called “Unbroken Ties, 20 Years of Intercontinental Collaboration.”

Her speech, open to the general public, was titled “Who Teaches Creative Writing?”, and approached a broad audience which included recently hired PhD graduates, students and faculty.  She also visited individual classes and shared her experience as a writer and as a published author. The two day event, held on March 10 and 11, was sponsored by the Department of Modern Languages and the Latin American Studies Program, among several other departments of the University of Ohio.
