With Marcelo Luján

Workshop Description

Since Stieg Larsson published the Millennium saga, the adepts to the genre have not stopped growing. Readers, publishers, booksellers: all in search of the same: the black novel. But what is a black novel nowadays? What are the keys to writing dark stories? Is it possible to dispense with the police investigation in a text called "negro"?

We believe - and we have proof of this - that there is a new way of telling reality. We believe that the rise for "the black" does not directly refer to the classic histories of detective research. The Greek tragedy - Oedipus Rey, for example - is usually a narrative plagued by darkness, without the strict necessity of resorting to research. That is, evil occurs - evil exists - prior to the discovery of the killer. And it is this aspect that interests us, because it breaks with the traditional canons. Everything that has to do with evil, attracts us. As readers but also as writers.... [-]

The study of classical civilisation is understandably a wide-ranging and far-reaching one encompassing a variety of subjects; history, literature, linguistics, numismatics, epigraphy, archaeology, art, architecture and philosophy. Classical civilisation is the term applied to the civilisations of Greece and Rome.

In terms of a time scale, Classical Greece is usually considered to be the 5th and 4th centuries, specifically the period between the end of the Persian Wars to the death of Alexander the Great: 479-323 BC. The Roman period is more difficult to pin down to specific dates. Most universities will start with the beginnings of Roman expansion into Italy in the early 5th century and run to Alaric’s sack of Rome in 410 AD. This course is designed to allow you to study at your own pace and is designed to develop an interest and understanding of Classical Civilisation.... [-]
