"Pure Liminality: Discursive Ambiguities in Daniel Alarcon's Lost City Radio"

Grant in Aid of Research

Final Report: "In the Spring 2013 semester, I had a paper accepted at the “Altered States, Diverse Routes” interdisciplinary conference at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. This symposium was an excellent opportunity for me to present my current research on the concept of “National Literature” in this age of globalization and the ever-expanding Andean diaspora. I discussed my reading of the Peruvian-American Daniel Alarcón’s debut novel Lost City Radio (2007) as a critical dystopia which reflects upon the recent violent history of Peru while at the same time examines the handling of the Bush administration’s War on Terror. I received positive feedback on my work as well as established contacts with other scholars who share similar academic interests."
