Paper on Celestina at the international colloquium “Estrategias picarescas en tiempos de crisis” (11th-12th December 2014, Universität Trier)

PosterTrier2014The international colloquium “Estrategias picarescas en tiempos de crisis” examines the question of how literary characters deal and cope with crisis; a topic very appropriate for the times we are living in. With papers ranging from the XVth to the XXIst century, Celestina could not be absent from this event on account of its privileged position in the transition from the Middle Ages to the Early Modern period and the socio-historical topics it covers: prostitution, servitude, descent, authority, nobility’s idleness, friendship…

On the 12th December 2014, during the first session of the day, Amaranta Saguar García will be talking about “El salto generacional en Celestina: la juventud enfrentada a los cambios socio-económicos de finales del siglo XV”. According to the abstract she has made available at Academia.edu, she will be analysing the different attitudes with which the mature and the young characters confront the crisis of the end of the XVth century and how they reflect (or do not) the spirit of the century and of the Early Modern period to start.

This international colloquium is taking place at Campus I of the University of Trier (Gästeraum der Mensa) from the 11th to the 12th of December 2014. The full-programme can be downloaded here.
