The novel as history. García Márquez, Barranquilla and Carnival

Cartagena 2018, 

Could novels be a source of information for those who write history? Should the novelist who tackles historical themes ensure that the story is in line with the facts of the past? The historian Eduardo Posada-Carbó, lecturer at the University of Oxford, and the writer Juan Esteban Constaín, author of various historical novels, will talk about the work of García Márquez and the way in which historians and literary critics have given his novels an historical interpretation.
