Cosmopolitanism and forgiveness in Canadian literature

Dr. Eva Darias Beautell visited the University of Vigo on November the 27th, where she delivered a lecture entitled “Responding to Crises: Cosmopolitanism and Forgiveness in Canadian Literature”. Starting with a brief introduction to theoretical approaches to cosmopolitanism and the ethics of state apologies, Dr. Darias Beautell dedicated a part of her analysis to the case of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada that investigated the policy of forced assimilation of Indigenous children in Residential Schools in Canada. On the second part of her lecture she offered an extensive overview of diverse and divergent responses to crimes against human rights in the Canadian fiction written in English, including outstanding examples like Joy Kogawa’s Obasan, Rawi Hage’s Cockroach, Madelein Thien’s Certainty, and Joseph Boyden’s The Orenda. Her lecture was followed by an engaging Q&A period with the participation of graduate students and colleagues in our Ph.D. program.
