The power dynamic of the master/mistress-servant relationship, as represented in the works of several contemporary Mexican women writers, is the focus of Dr. Sandra Messinger-Cypess' presentation Thursday, May 3, at 4 p.m. in Lane Center 201 at Frostburg State University.
Professor of Spanish and Latin American Literature at University of Maryland College Park, Messinger-Cypess will disclose ways in which the power relationship may be further entangled by layers of class and ethnicity.
Hosted by Sigma Delta Pi, LaSO and the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures, Messinger-Cypess' lecture, presented in English, will highlight and illuminate the influence wielded by the "Malinche Paradigm" upon plays, novels and stories by Rosario Castellanos, Elena Garro and Cristina Pacheco.
The event is free and open to the public. An open discussion will follow. The presentation is sponsored by the FSU Faculty Development Workshop/Speaker Program.
