On Wednesday, April 7, 2021, Michelle Murray spoke at Dickinson’s Clarke Forum. She is an assistant professor of Spanish at Vanderbilt University. Her research and teaching focus on contemporary Spanish literature and film.
This talk provided a brief overview of the representation of migrant women by Spanish directors in the films Flores de otro mundo, Princesas, and Amador. The talk also connected these works to the writings of Lucía Asué Mbomío Rubio and Quan Zhou Wu, whose novels reflect and nuance the established frameworks for representing race and gender in contemporary Spain.
