Professor of Spanish and chair of the Modern Languages department at Washburn University

A New View of Kansas in Spanish Language Literature

Kansas- the “heart” of the United States. This is how many Americans view Kansas. But how do other nations see us? A different view of this place and the people who inhabit it emerges in literary works from Cuban, Mexican, Colombian, and Spanish authors. This talk focuses on works written from the 1940s to the present and offers a unique sense of place through the eyes of others.
