Dr. Paulo DutraAssistant professor, Languages, Cultures and Communication
Dutra published “Cervantine Tradition in Luisa Valenzuela: Dream, Relativization of Reality and Exposure of Literary Language Against the Truth of Official Speeches.”
The article, co-authored with Vitor Vogas from the Federal University of Espirito Santo, examines how Argentinian writer Luisa Valenzuela resorted to Cervantine literary tradition as a strategy of literary resistance. It details the opposition and resistance to the domination tactics employed by the civilian-military dictatorship, which ruled Argentina from 1976 to 1983.
