Photography in Times of a Pandemic: Latin American Writers in Quarantine

This event is a talk about the experience of photographing writers remotely during the pandemic.

Dr. Alejandro Meter is a Professor of Latin American culture(s) at the University of San Diego, CA. His specializations include the Jewish experience in Latin-America, immigration, and the politics of memory. As a photographer, Dr. Meter enjoys working on long-term projects, and for the last few years he has been photographing Latin American writers in a variety of contexts such as portraiture in the US-Mexico Borderlands, the Latin American Jewish Diaspora, and Crime Fiction Writers.  

Prof. Meter’s lecture will be followed by a Q&A session

We are certain that this opportunity will enhance our view of the Latin-American region and that all the attendees will appreciate the opportunity to learn from Prof. Meter about his timely and resonant work.

This event is sponsored by the Department of FL&L/Spanish Section, the Department of English, and the Jewish Studies Program.
