Mark your calendars for the presentation of a new book by Leonardo García Pabón, professor of Spanish, Department of Romance Languages. El cuento sentimental romántico en Bolivia (siglo XIX) is a 400-page anthology of short stories of the romantic period in Bolivia (19th century).
Mayra Bottaro, assistant professor of Spanish, Department of Romance Languages, will offer opening remarks.
The anthology is preceded by an extensive introductory study (100 pages) that analyses the articulations of love, nation building, and narratives in the short stories.

These texts were originally published in journals, magazines, and newspapers in Bolivia and Peru, and this is their first modern edition.
