Nicolás Lucero is a professor at the University of Georgia. He received his MA and his doctorate degree in Spanish from the University of Iowa in 2006. His dissertation, “Zone and Exterior: Character, Narrator, and Dialogue works of José Saer, explores Saer's aesthetics of narration as a form of critique by focusing on the elaboration of characters and narrators in his fiction. Before coming to the United States in 2001, Nicolás worked as a librarian at the Institute of Hispanic American Literature and as a teaching assistant at the University of Buenos Aires, where he received a License in Modern Literatures in 2000. Lucero currently teaches courses in 19th and 20th century Spanish American literatures at UGA. His interests include travel writing in the 19th century, theory of the novel, and Latin American cultural theory. He is currently working on a manuscript for a book on Saer and on a research project on Latin American travelers to the United States in the first half of the 19th century.

Lucero is the author of La máquina infernal (a monograph on José Rivera Indarte, a writer of the Argentine generation of 1837), and "La guerra gauchipolítica," which appeared in volume 2 of Historia crítica de la literatura argentina (Noé Jitrik and Julio Schvartzman, eds.). An essay on Saer's Glosa, co-authored with Daniel Balderston, is forthcoming in the critical edition of Glosa/El entenado edited by Julio Premat for Colección Archivos.

A panel discussion - with representation from various academic disciplines, ranging from economics to literature - will explore an overview of issues associate with these disciplines and present a reminder that the future is not random, that its peculiarly American idealization is often dangerously ill-conceive, and that different disciplines have approached the future very differently, both for society at large and for our Jacksonville community.
