We are pleased to announce the publication of Playful Memories: The Autofictional Turn in Post-Dictatorship Argentina. Dr Blejmar’s book is a multimedia and interdisciplinary study of the use of autofiction, black humour, parody and playful memories exercised by the post-dictatorship generation in Argentina.
- Review excerpt:
- “Jordana Blejmar’s Playful Memories: The Autofictional Turn in Post-Dictatorship Argentina masterfully analyses a wide range of literary and artistic works by children of the disappeared and the post-dictatorship generation in Argentina more generally, showing how these writers and artists engage with the traumatic memory of the 1976-1983 military regime in a deliberately provocative, humorous, irreverent manner”. (Stef Craps, Associate Professor of English Literature, Ghent University, Belgium, and author of “Postcolonial Witnessing: Trauma Out of Bounds”)
