Title: “Ramón Díaz Eterovic: Dealing with the Trauma of the Pinochet Years through Detective Fiction”

The new detective novel in Latin America or neopoliciaco has become the new social novel for many critics. In Chile, it has developed into one of the preferred genres to rescue the past and recollect the years of the dictatorship and its consequences. I will briefly discuss three novels by Ramón Díaz Eterovic in his Heredia series and analyze how they explain “the relationship between the configuration of the historical memory and the description of society during the dictatorship and its following years” (Díaz Eterovic 664).

Students are welcome and coffee and treats will be provided. We look forward to seeing you there.
