Soledad Marambio is a poet and translator, and earned her PhD in Latin American, Iberian, and Latino Cultures at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. In her postdoctoral project at the University of Bergen, she will work with the late writings of Sylvia Molloy, Silvina Ocampo and Aurora Venturini. The project, entitled "The fragmentary writings of Venturini, Ocampo and Molloy: Late pieces against death", will focus on how these Argentinian authors explore ideas of temporality, decline and fear as a way of knowing and owning the process of ageing. Marambio argues that with old age, these authours became freer and more experimental, defying conventions for writing fiction and non-fiction, disturbing the notion of tight-knit and univocal life narratives.
