Why feeling rules in Mexico? The grammar of emotion in Modern Languages

3 December 2012

Time: 12:00 - 12:00am
Venue: Arts One Lecture Theatre, Mile End Campus

The Kate Elder Lecture series was established in 1989 by the Department of Hispanic Studies by means of a generous endowment made by the parents and grandparents of Kate Elder, a student of the department who died tragically during her first year of study.


The next Kate Elder Lecture will take place in November 2013.
