Luisa Valenzuela

 

This small exhibition features material from Argentinian author, journalist, and social activist Luisa Valenzuela.

One of the most widely translated female South American writers, Valenzuela's writing is characterized by an experimental, avant-garde style which questions hierarchical political social structures from a feminist perspective. She is best known for her work written in response to the violence and suffering experienced in many Latin American countries under authoritarian regimes, especially the dictatorship in Argentina during the 1970s.

Located in the Gotlieb Memorial Gallery on the first of Mugar Memorial Library, 771 Commonwealth Avenue. The exhibition can be viewed during regular library hours.
