Lynd to explore Chile’s No Tribe, March 16
Associate Professor Juliet Lynd of the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures will present “The Non Archive of the No Tribe: Poetics and Politics in Chile 1967-73” at 3 p.m. Wednesday, March 16, in Stevenson Hall, room 202.
Her talk will explore the Tribu No (The No Tribe), a small group of poets and artists who worked together from 1967-1973, before the Pinochet dictatorship. “Although they unwaveringly supported the socialist project of President Salvador Allende (1970-73), their work consistently questioned the ideological dogmas of the state, which kept them at the margins of the cultural life of the nation,” said Lynd, who is working with the founder of the group to recover and publish the documents that remain along with a critical history of the No Tribe’s activities.
Lynd teaches courses on Latin American literature and culture and is an affiliated faculty member of the Latin American and Latino/a Studies program. Her research interests are contemporary Latin American literature and culture; literary and cultural studies; politics of literature and culture in Chile since the 1960s; and intersections between theories of literature, culture, politics, and performance.
