Antonio Muñoz Molina is the guest speaker of the Cunninghame Graham Lecture 2015, organised by the University of Edinburgh with the collaboration of the Embassy of Spain in the United Kingdom.
The Bilingual novel: from Cervantes to Joyce, to Dickens and Galdos is the title of the lecture in which the Spanish journalist and writer will reflect on the Anglo-Saxon influences on his work, and a parallel reflection on the “Cervantino” origin of the novel in English.
Antonio Muñoz Molina (born 10 January 1956) is since 8 June 1995, a full member of the Royal Spanish Academy. In 2013 he received the Prince of Asturias Award for literature.
The Cunninghame Graham Lecture was established in 1996 in honour of Robert Cunninghame Graham, politician, writer, adventurer, who spent part of his life in Argentina, and who founded the Scottish nationalist movement and was a member of parliament.
The objective of this annual conference organized by the School of Languages and Civilizations at the University of Edinburgh and the Office of Cultural and Scientific Affairs of the Embassy of Spain, is the dissemination of culture and Spanish language in Scotland and maintaining a close relationship with a Scottish university.
