Carlos Granés in conversation with Adolfo Meisel-Roca and Antonio Celia

Auditorio Marvel Moreno, Universidad del Norte, Barranquilla

Carlos Granés (Bogotá) is an essayist and PhD in Social Anthropology from the Complutense University of Madrid. Delirio americano: Una historia cultural y política de América Latina (2021) is his new work and he talked about it with Adolfo Meisel-Roca, economic historian and rector of the Universidad del Norte, and Antonio Celia, director of the Centro de Arte y Cultura Cayena. Following a timeline from the death of José Martí to the death of Fidel Castro, the book analyses the many 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 guerrillas, to end up examining the most immediate present and the unexpected way in which the politics and culture of Latin America has ended up influencing the whole world.
