My research focuses on early modern literature and culture, with particular focus on drama, religion, gender, and sexuality. I am also interested in critical university studies and teaching.
371 is an introduction to canonical works of Early Modern Spanish. This semester, we take a novel approach to the reading and interpretation of masterpieces of Spanish literature to revisit the notion of canon, and to challenge standard disciplinary approaches that constrain Spanish and Portuguese within the boundaries of national literary and cultural traditions. We do this by following the way to stardom of iconic literary characters like Don Quixote, or Don Juan, from their birth to today, through the theoretical framework of comparative cultural studies. As we read our texts we will discuss issues of transnationality, network dissemination, fragmentariness, fandom, material culture, etc. Students work in a Project Based Learning environment and collaborate on a digital studio suite to create and build experiential and educational resources on Early Modern literature and culture for use in schools, adult education programs, prisons, and other community centers.
