CMAS Carlos E. Castañeda Postdoctoral Fellow Lecture: Marcel Brousseau

Gordon White Building (GWB), 2.206 (Multipurpose Room) 210 24TH ST W, Austin, Texas 78705

The Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) will host the Carlos E. Castañeda Postdoctoral Fellow Lecture on May 2, 2016.  The lecture will a feature presentation by Marcel Brousseau.

Marcel Brousseau, Ph.D. is a recipient of the Carlos E. Castañeda Postdoctoral Fellowship in Mexican American Studies for the 2015-2016 academic year. He received his Doctor of Philosophy degree from the Comparative Literature Program at the University of California, Santa Barbara in 2015.

The title of Marcel Brousseau’s presentation is “Maps of Rage/ Maps of Respect: Moralized Cartography and Trans-American Migration.” His presentation will examine ways in which the obsolete medium of allegorical cartography and the emergent medium of critical cartography can be combined to create forms for visualizing 21st-century migrant journeys. Brousseau details the process for creating a “moralized road map” of Óscar Martínez’s 2010 migration narrative Los migrantes que no importan in terms of its rhetorical inspirations and semantic challenges.
