Dr. Gerardo Pignatiello discusses betrayal plot of “tango canción”

The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program is inviting the campus community to a lecture led by Dr. Gerardo Pignatiello, assistant professor of romance languages and literatures at Binghamton University. The talk is at 1:10 p.m. March 5 in the Ithaca Falls Room, entitled “‘Ten cuidado mariposa’: violencia y racionalidad económica de la moral tanguera” [‘Be Careful Butterfly’: Violence and Economic Reason in Tango Morality]. Pignatiello will discuss the betrayal plot in tango and how it explains avariety of relationships. To avoid these betrayals, tango lyrics can advise, threaten or “kill.” The presentation will explore the representation of these different types of violence in the Golden Age of the “tango cancion,” 1916 to 1955. Pignatiello has a PhD in Hispanic Studies from the University of Pennsylvania. His research focuses on crime and detective fiction (literature and film) in the Southern Cone of Latin America. The talk will be in Spanish. Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact Camilo A Malagón at [email protected]. Requests for accommodations should be made as soon as possible.
