Maria Mercedes Andrade specializes in critical theory, modernism studies, and Latin American literature at the Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. She’s the author of Ambivalent Desires: Representations of Modernity and Private Life in Colombia (1890s-1950s). Tuesday’s meeting will  workshop a chapter from her current project on the Colombian poet and novelist José Asunción Silva, provisionally titled “‘That heteroclite assembly’: Collecting, Modernity and the ‘Savage Mind’ in De sobremesa.” Her larger critical interest involves the intersections between the development of Latin American modernismo and international modernism.
