Humanities Centre L3, University of Alberta, Edmonton

2011 Trudeau scholar Libe García Zarranz will give a lecture titled “Love Ain’t Enough: TransCanLit’s Affective Transpositions” at the University of Alberta. Dr. García Zarranz is Postdoctoral Fellow of the Centre for Globalization and Cultural Studies, University of Manitoba, and a Research Affiliate of the Canadian Literature Centre. 

"This lecture puts Dionne Brand’s latest novel, Love Enough (2014), in conversation with the feminist philosophy of Rosi Braidotti, as illustrated in the study Transpositions: On Nomadic Ethics (2006). The presentation will focus on how both poet and theorist insist on the centrality of affective relations in the transformation of subjectivity, political alliances, and ethical spaces under processes of uneven globalization and rampant technocapitalism."
