More Celestina at congresses

More non-celestinesque duties have made it impossible to announce a paper of celestinesque interest at the XVIII Jornadas de Trabajo de la Asociación Española de Bibliografía (13th-14th November 2017, Biblioteca Nacional de España): María Remedios Prieto talked about La Celestina: contiendas suscitadas tras la publicación de la Comedia y algunas correcciones textuales en la Tragicomedia. Neither have we been able to announce the session Celestina and Beyond: Exploring the Abject in Medieval and Early Modern Literature” proposed by Ana M. Montero (St. Louis University) for the Sixth Annual Symposium on Medieval and Renaissance Studies (18th-20th June 2018, Saint Louis University), with a still open call for papers. However, today we have received the proceedings of the V Congreso Internacional sobre el Arcipreste de Hita “Dueñas, cortesanas y alcahuetas: Libro de buen amor, La Celestina, La Lozana andaluza” (26th-27th May 2017, Alcalá la Real), which includes several papers on celestinesque topics, and we would like to share them with you.

Celestina at international congresses in 2017

Other duties have prevented us from informing you on time about the many papers on Celestina read at international congresses on 2017. While the 2016 conferences season was rather poor in celestinesque topics, the roundtable “The Visual Culture of Celestina” at the 62nd Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America (Boston, 31 March–2 April 2016) and the session on Celestina at the XIX Congreso Internacional de la AIH being the only representation of Celestina at international congresses known to us, this year seems more favourable to celestinesque papers. To this day, at least seven papers on Celestina were programmed at the 63rd Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America (Chicago, 30 March – 1 April 2017), at the 52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies (Medieval Institute, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, 11-14 May 2017), and at the LIII Congreso de la Asociación Canadiense de Hispanistas (Toronto, 21 May – 2 June 2017):

  • “Four Hispanic Examples of Friendship and Its European Correlatives: Libro de Alexandre, Libro de caballero Zifar, El Conde Lucanor, Celestina, Adam Alberto Vázquez Cruz (University of Saskatchewan), 52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies.
  • “From the Tormes Tanneries to the Puerta de Elvira: Celestina’s Morisca Daughters”, Andrea Nate (Truman State University), 52nd International Congress on Medieval Studies.
  • “La Edad Media en La Celestina vista e interpretada desde sus adaptaciones de cine y televisión”, José Eduardo Villalobos Graillet, (University of Toronto), LIII Congreso de la ACH.
  • “Pasión y muerte: el erotismo en La Celestina“, Alba Devo, (Western University), LIII Congreso de la ACH.

  • “Acercamiento computacional a los diálogos de La Celestina“, Ana Ruiz Segarra, (Western University), LIII Congreso de la ACH.

And there are several other papers programmed at the XI Congreso de la Asociación Internacional Siglo de Oro (Madrid, 10-14 July 2017) and the XVII Congreso Internacional de la Asociación Hispánica de Literatura Medieval (Rome, 26-30 September 2017):

  • Session “Cultura visual y literatura del Siglo de Oro” at the XI Congreso de la AISO: with the papers “Las iluminaciones de los manuscritos terencianos en las primeras ediciones ilustradas de La Celestina” (Enrique Fernández-Rivera), “Crimen y castigo: ilustrando la justicia en La Celestina y otras obras del Siglo de Oro” (Raúl Álvarez-Moreno), “Busconas, alcahuetas y pícaras en la cultura visual del Siglo de Oro” (Rachel Schmidt), and “Análisis de la representación de la muerte en La Celestina y el Quijote en sus adaptaciones cinematográficas” (Yolanda Iglesias).
