Tim Buendia has spent the past five years avidly studying the life, works, and important contributions of Gabriel Garcia Marquez to the global community. Gabriel Garcia Marquez is a prominent literary figure whose life and experiences in Aracataca, Colombia have enabled his writing to create a literary bridge linking the struggles in Latin America to the world at large.
Through his study of Garcia Marquez and his work promoting cultural awareness and relations, he has explored historical facts which demonstrate the eminent part Aracataca has also played in changing our perceptions of the history of Latin America.
Tim Buendia proposes to lecture on these topics at your institution with aspirations to raise cultural awareness and depict a more integral view of Colombia’s history. His lecture, which is based on his investigation and experiences in this town that was Gabriel Garcia Marquez’s prime inspiration, will give new insight in how Aracataca and Garcia Marquez shaped Colombia’s history, as well as their influence in today’s society.
This lecture is therefore suitable for your Latin American studies – Literature – Anthropology– Humanities – Spanish Language – International Relations – Program.
