As part of our recruiting effort for 2018, MALAS is proud to announce the visit and public lecture by American literary star Susan Daitch at San Diego State University. Daitch's presentation (with movie screenings of Georges Méliès movies) is the first lecture of our Textual Matriarchies series which goes down tomorrow morning, Thursday, November 16, featuring New York based writer Susan Daitch.  If you could be there, I would appreciate it as this is the first of three MALAS lecture/events this Fall.  The other two are a lecture by Myriam Gurba the Thursday after thanksgiving November 30, and one the following Tuesday, December 5, with Lacanian Psychoanalyst Deyanira Torres based in Tijuana, Baja California!

Susan Daitch is the author of four novels, L.C. (Lannan Foundation Selection and NEA Heritage Award), THE COLORIST, PAPER CONSPIRACIES, THE LOST CIVILIZATION OF SUOLUCIDIR and a collection of short stories, STORYTOWN. A novella, FALL OUT, published by Madras Press donates all proceeds to Women for Afghan Women. Her work has appeared in Tinhouse, Lit Hub, Slice, Black Clock, Conjunctions, Guernica, Bomb, Ploughshares, The Barcelona Review, Redivider, failbetter.com, McSweeney's, Salt Hill Journal, Pacific Review, Dewclaw, Dear Navigator, The Library of Potential Literature, The Pushcart Prize Anthology, and The Norton Anthology of Postmodern American Fiction. Her work was featured in The Review of Contemporary Fiction along with William Vollman and David Foster Wallace. She has been the recipient of two Vogelstein awards and a New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship. She has taught at Barnard College, Columbia University, and the Iowa Writers' Workshop and currently teaches at Hunter College.
The TEXTUAL MATRIARCHIES series showcases women writers whose creative and critical work is helping to reshape and reimagine the contours of interdisciplinary research, the practices of  cultural studies in the 21st century.
  All these presentations are in GMCS 333 @ 11am on the SDSU main campus.

Free and open to the public!

Bring friends and guests (and prospective new MALAS graduate students as these lectures are part of our recruitment campaign)!

Also note you are invited from 2:30 to 5ish to Eureka right by the Aztec Student Center tomorrow, Thursday, November 16 for an informal reception for Susan Daitch.


Be there!
