Performing Spain’s Historical Memory
A special session. Presiding: Juan Hernando Vázquez, Univ. of California, Davis
Speakers: Esther Fernández, Rice Univ.; Alison Guzmán, Providence Coll.; Juan Hernando Vázquez; Victoria Louise Ketz, La Salle Univ.; Payton Phillips Quintanilla, Univ. of California, Los Angeles; Mar Soria, Univ. of Missouri, Columbia
The objective is to create a transhistorical perspective from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century, in order to explore how the notion of historical memory in Spanish dramaturgy has developed with respect to its content (events that have shaped the making of the country and its identity), its dramatic structure, and its performative renditions.
