Project: Research

Project Details

Description

This research aims to offer an analytical and exhaustive vision of Peruvian narrative production throughout the period between the early twentieth and mid-1970s, taking as its axis the representation of the space and its treatments and appropriations. For this, novels, stories, essays and journalistic chronicles will be examined, in which different treatments of space are proposed, which reflect and process fictionally the transformations that have occurred in the city over time, be they social, cultural, urban or political. The analysis will allow recognizing the different ways of configuring both public and private space in the selected texts, as well as the different modes of appropriation of this, taking into account the relationship established by both narrators and individual and collective characters.
