Spanish Professor Publishes Review

Professor Useche reviews Travis Landry’s Subversive Seduction: Darwin, Sexual Selection, and the Spanish Novel.

Professor Useche’s last review essay was published in the most recent number of the journal Cuadernos de Literatura. In his reading of Travis Landry’s last book on the impact of Darwin and Darwinism in Spain, Useche highlights the importance of approaching science and literature as correlated social constructions.

Studying the particular conditions of production of both scientific theory and the work of art thereby provides the critic with new tools to analyze the complexities of culture.
