Event Description

This lecture will analyze the importance of the archive for the construction of the nation. What is the archive and what role does politics play in it? Jorge Camacho will discuss the evolution of Jos6 Marti's works from the time of his death to today, and how they have been collected from different sources and a variety of ways. The talk will assess Carlos Ripoll's contributions to our understanding of Marti, and how Camacho's research project has led him to publish more than 50 previously unknown chronicles that Marti wrote while living in New York in the 1880s. The question that guides this lecture is how did we come to have a body of work that we call today his Obras completas? Are they really"complete"or are there still articles, poems, and translations that we still do not know about?
