"Magical Moments: The Spirituality of Wonder in Religion and Literature"

10/11/2013 - 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Explore the metaphor of wonder in the history of the Spanish exploration of the New World, beginning with the period of the Conquest through the 20th century style of literature called, magical realism. Since wonder is way of describing an encounter with something new, unexpected, and largely incomprehensible, it was used in great abundance by many Latin American explorers and later writers of the Americas. Join UA Professor Alex Nava to learn more about the spirituality behind the wonder.

This event is presented by the UA College of Humanities, Religious Studies.
