I've been tapped at the last minute by a "Multicultural Academic Workshop" to replace a professor who can't attend. There are not many guidelines about the prrsentation. I've attended such a workshop a few years ago, and the quality was really uneven. Some presentations were so jargon-ladder that they would put Fredric Jameson to sleep. On the other hand, the biology professor was fascinating. He focused on pollution and business within the city, and how it correlates with lower income neighborhoods. So I am not very sure what I will talk about, but knowing myself, I'll try to ruffle a few feathers. And maybe convinced the gender studies English professor that Isabel Allende s**cks.
Back to my cry for help: I've been thinking that a good starting point would be Fuguet's prologue to the McOndo anthology. It's bombastic and sometimes innacurate, but it is a great text to start shattering stereotypes. The big problem is that I only have a copy in Spanish, and the course is entirely in English. I don't even know if it has been translated into English. So my question (more like begging)is: do you know if there is a copy somewhere of that Prologue in English? If so, do you have access to it? Is there any place where I can find it online? Seriously, if you know where to find a copy of Fuguet's work, I'll be forever grateful. And remember that I need it by Monday.
PS: even if you do not find the complete text, anything you can bring me will make incredibly happy.
