Presenters/Papers:

  1. Julia Farmer, University of West Georgia
    Critics have long tended to view Maria de Zayas as a conservative figure in favor of upper-class and Habsburg hegemony. A closer reading of her Desengaños amorosos, however, reveals that Zayas’s call for female independence is often intrinsically linked to the secessionist tendencies of rebellious Habsburg realms during the 1640’s, and that the Desengaños may be read in a more revolutionary vein than it may appear at first glance.
  2. DeLys Ostlund, Portland State University
    This paper will explore the relationship between the Quixote and the theory of history found in the prologues of medieval works ranging from novels of chivalry to official court chronicles.
  3. Ramona Ojeda, Texas Tech University
    El artículo examina el fenómeno psiquiátrico de la locura como recurso literario. Desarrolla una lectura comparativa entre los personajes de Maximiliano Rubín de Fortunata y Jacinta de Benito Pérez Galdós y don Quijote de El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha de Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.
  4. Juan Jesús Payán, University of California - Los Angeles
    En esta presentación me propongo documentar la función que desempeñó el legado fantástico morisco y andalusí en la obra del exiliado liberal José María Blanco White durante la primera recepción del hoffmanianismo en Inglaterra y el impacto de sus ideas en autores posteriores.
