Carlos Granés (Colombia) is an essayist, with a doctorate in Social Anthropology from the Complutense University of Madrid. He will talk to Juan Carlos Pérez about his new book, Delirio americano: Una historia cultural y política de América Latina (2021). In an arc that takes us from the death of José Martí to the death of Fidel Castro, Delirio americano analyses a great variety of the cultural, political and ideological currents that have contributed to the invention of modern Latin America, from modernism and the Americanist avant-garde to political and cultural guerrilla wars, in order to end up by examining the most immediate present and the unexpected form in which the politics and culture of Latin America have influenced the entire world. In conversation with Juan Carlos Pérez.

Historical narratives about Latin America have usually arisen out of the colonial imagination. The Volver a contar: Historias latinoamericanas en el Museo Británico project, a collaboration between the Hay Festival and the Santo Domingo Centre of Excellence for Latin American Research (SDCELAR) at the British Museum, seeks to problematize and redirect these narratives, creating new discourses through the interpretations of objects in the museum’s Americas collection by artists, writers and thinkers from the region. This is a very necessary re-reading of our past in order to build a more plural and inclusive future. With Yásnaya Elena Aguilar (Mexico), Dolores Reyes (Argentina), Cristina Rivera Garza (Mexico) and Joseph Zárate (Peru), in conversation with Amanda de la Garza. With a presentation by Felipe Restrepo Pombo.
