First Cátedra Vargas Llosa in the U.S.A.

Mario Vargas Llosa

Mario Vargas Llosa

The City College of New York (CCNY) will host the first Cátedra Vargas Llosa in the United States, an international academic project honoring Mario Vargas Llosa, the renowned Peruvian novelist and 2010 Nobel laureate in literature. The Cátedra’s mission is to provide interdisciplinary resources to study the works of Vargas Llosa and to promote emerging Spanish-language writers. At a ceremony to take place at CCNY’s Great Hall on November 4, Vargas Llosa will sign the agreement establishing the Cátedra and Dr. Efraín Kristal, professor and chair of comparative literature at UCLA, will deliver the inaugural lecture.  Vargas Llosa remains very active on the international scene as a writer, teacher, editorialist and actor.
