Works-in-Progress Happy Hour
Laura Muñoz, PhD Student, UCLA Department of Spanish & Portuguese
“Valencia, All a Riot: Lope de Vega’s (Re)Creation of the Valencian Cityscape”
CMRS is hosting twice-monthly Works-in-Progress Happy Hours to promote intellectual exchange and collegiality while most of us are continuing to work and learn remotely. The Happy Hours are open to UCLA faculty and graduate students and consist of a short informal presentation followed by open discussion.
LAURA MUÑOZ examines the theatrical production of early modern Valencian playwright Guillén de Castro in her dissertation and for this talk will be discussing the third chapter of this work, which examines how Lope de Vega engages with Castro’s native Valencia. She is an active member of the UCLA Working Group, “The Comedia in Translation and Performance” and has worked on various translations of Golden Age comedias.
Invitations to register for the Zoom link will be sent by email.
