Roundtable: The Visual Culture of Celestina

Fri, April 1, 1:30 to 3:00pm, Hynes Convention Center, Level Three, 310

Abstract

The history of the Spanish literary masterpiece Celestina has been shaped by the inclusion of images from the very first edition (1499). The following five centuries were punctuated by many illustrated editions, imaginary portraits of the eponymous procuress Celestina by painters such as Murillo, Goya, and Picasso, and, recently, cinema adaptations. Considered second only to Don Quixote, Celestina is the landmark separating the medieval and the Renaissance periods of Spanish literature. It connects directly with the comedia humanistica and with Terence’s legacy. The graphic treatment of Celestina in the first illustrated editions (woodcuts), their connection to the manuscript tradition of Terence’s comedies, the treatment in the fine arts (paintings, statues) and in the arts of the camera (cinema adaptations, pictures of the dramatic performances, advertising posters, etc.), as well as in many other media (postal stamps and lottery tickets with Celestinaimages) will be analyzed in this roundtable.

Sat, April 2, 1:30 to 3:00pm, Park Plaza, Fourth Floor, Beacon Hill RoomSession Submission Type: Roundtable

Abstract

This roundtable will bring together seven scholars to explore current theoretical and methodological questions (historiography, historical memory, precarity, postcolonialism) as they pertain to the staging of history by early modern Spanish dramatists. Discussants will explore the staging of Spain’s Gothic, North African, and medieval legacies; domestic, imperial, and international relations and conflicts; and internal and external forms of subalternity. The panel will feature canonical authors (Lope, Calderón, Mira de Amescua) and plays (La cisma de Inglaterra) as well as lesser-known works by Ximénez de Enciso, Coello, and Zárate.
