Spanish Lecture by world expert 

Pupils studying Pre-U Spanish were privileged to attend a lecture at the start of the Summer Term given by one of the world’s most prominent experts on Gabriel García Márquez. The fascinating lecture by Professor Stephen Hart, Professor of Latin American Film, Literature and Culture at University College London, on El coronel no tiene quien le escriba included insights into the author from exclusive interviews and his extensive research work in Colombia.

Professor Hart’s literary biography of García Márquez was Reaktion Books' "Book of the Month" when it was published in August 2010, and has since been translated into Chinese.

Francisco Compan, Head of Spanish, commented:

“Having just returned to the UK from several months in Italy, we were extremely fortunate to find a slot in Professor Hart’s agenda for this visit.  We thank him very much for taking the time to deliver such a thought provoking lecture.”
