TALK "Realism and Fiction in Contemporary Women´s Writing"

The Embassies of Colombia and Spain in India, and Instituto Cervantes in New Delhi, have the pleasure to invite you to the talk by Cristina Sánchez-Andrade, Inma López Silva, Laura Restrepo and Mercedes Cebrián in conversation with Urvashi Butalia.

About the writers: 

Cristina Sánchez-Andrade (Santiago de Compostela, Spain, 1968) is the author of eight novels, including Ya no pisa la tierra tu rey (Your King No Longer Walks this Earth), which won the Guadalajara International Book Fair’s prestigious Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz literary prize in 2005, and Las Inviernas (The Winterlings), which was a finalist for the Herralde Novel Prize in 2013. Her work has been translated into English, Portuguese, Italian, German, Polish and Russian. Her last novel, Alguien bajo los párpados (Someone Beneath my Eyelids) was published in 2017.

Inma López Silva (Santiago de Compostela, Spain, 1978) is a fiction author, essayist, theater critic and teaches at the Galician School of Drama. Her fiction writing reflects on how perceptions of evil have a gender bias and how beliefs impose constraints on our conduct and is currently writing about sexual abuse, media misrepresentation and lies as a political tool. She was the recipient of the Xerais Novel prize in 2002 for Concubinas (Concubines) and her most recent work, Aqueles dias en que éramos malas (Those Days When We Behaved Badly) was published in 2016.

Laura Restrepo (Santafé de Bogotá, Colombia, 1950). Journalist, political activist and novelist. Raised on unconventional education, acquired a different social awareness, and emerged as a writer, seeing writing as historical record. Few writers have been able to craft together fact and fiction so flawlessly to produce a created world that deals with so many real world issues as Laura Restrepo. Making a splash in the 1980s with her journalism and spending time as an exile because of it, Restrepo is no stranger to the dangers that are prevalent in the world, and is able to express the multitude of angles that these dangers represent through her characters and narration. Most important to the core of Restrepo's work is her love for her home country of Columbia and discovering the past of the war and the drug culture that has destroyed parts of the country and how from that past the country can be rebuilt.

Mercedes Cebrián (Madrid, Spain, 1971) writes fiction, journalistic essays and poetry  and has translated George Perec, Alan Silitoe and Miranda July. Her literary universe explores, among other aspects of reality, the emotional ties that humans develop with objects. Always the ironic observer, critics have remarked her ability to uncover the intensity of what at first appears light and simple.  She holds MAs in Spanish and Latin American Studies from Birkbeck College and from the University of Pennsylvania). Her last novel El genuino sabor (The genuine flavour) was published in June 2014 and her last collection of short essays, Burp, appeared last year.

Urvashi Butalia is a publisher and writer. Co-founder of Kali for Women, India’s first feminist publisher, and now director of Zubaan, she is also author of the award-winning oral history of Partition, The Other Side of Silence: Voices from the Partition of India.
