The Centre for Galician Studies will soon welcome Dr Helena González Fernández from the University of Barcelona to give a seminar with the title “Vivamos como galegos! Nation, emotions and (super)market”.
Dr Helena González Fernández is Lecturer in Galician literature and Director of the Centre Dona i Literatura at the University of Barcelona. The main themes of her research are feminist literary criticism, popular culture, Galician contemporary literature, and cultural relations between Galicia and Catalonia.
Her seminar will offer a critical reading of the advertisements of a well-known chain of Galician supermarkets. The ads of this company are quite conservative, but also very popular, and they allow for reflecting on the current society and icons of the popular culture of Galicia.
When? Monday 9th of March at 4 pm
Where? Ashley Building, room 121a
