Associate Professor Maria Takolander Featured in Deakin’s Invenio

Associate Professor Maria Takolander was recently featured in Deakin University’s Invenio in relation to her upcoming appearance at the 2017 International Poetry Festival in Medellin, Colombia:

‘Assoc Prof Takolander, whose PhD focused on Latin-American magical realism, said being invited to represent Australia at the festival was “like coming full circle”.

“During my PhD, a key writer for me was the Columbian Gabriel García Márquez. Now, I’m finally getting to travel to Columbia and practice the Spanish I learnt during my study.

“To get to visit the place and experience its literature is a very special thing.”’ – Maria Takolander
