Works-in-Progress Happy Hour
Laura Muñoz, Graduate Student, Department of Spanish & Portuguese, UCLA
“Valencia, All a Riot: Lope de Vega’s (Re)Creation of the Valencian Cityscape”
Laura Muñoz examines the theatrical production of early modern Valencian playwright Guillén de Castro, and looks at how this playwright’s innovations enhance our understanding of the development of theater in the seventeenth century. 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.
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.
