This free event is sponsored by Instituto Cervantes, Manchester and is the second installment of our three-part 1968 Symposium event.

Spanish author Marta Sanz will be visiting the University of Leicester to speak on the subject of the body in and as political discourse, a recurring theme in her literary work. Sanz's talk (in Spanish – a translation of her intervention will be made available) will take place on the eve of the Symposium 'The Legacy of 1968 in Latin America’.

Sanz is one of Spain's most interesting contemporary writers, and has received prestigious literary awards including the 2015 Herralde Prize for her novel Farándula and the Ojo Crítico de Narrativa Prize in 2001 for Los mejores tiempos. Her first novel was published in the mid-1990s, and she has since authored another eleven novels, as well as two essays and three volumes of poetry. She holds a PhD in Spanish literature and wrote her doctoral thesis on Spanish poetry during the country's transition to democracy (1975-1986), an era to which she returned in the critically-acclaimed 2013 novel Daniela Astor y la caja negra.
