How (not) to Read the Cannibal Manifesto

Luis Madureira, University od Wisconsin Madison

Do you think you know how to eat a book? Is reading an act similar to devouring your fellow man? Prof. Madureira will discuss the epistemological conditions that inform the critical "re-readings" of Oswald de Andrade's classic and polemical book: Manifesto Antropófago.

PROFESSOR MADUREIRA will be delivering a talk and have a conversation with Professor Zita Nunes. In these events Prof Madureira will address one of Brazil’s most influential texts, the “Cannibal Manifesto” by Oswald de Andrade, and the modernist movement in Brazil. Through a postcolonial studies reading, Madureira reevaluates the movement of Antropofagia (Anthropophagy) and its dialogue with European and Latin American modernisms, challenging notions of intellectual and cultural dependence and peripheral modernism that abound in the critical works surrounding this literary movement in Brazil.
