María Bastianes at the cycle “La Celestina: Representaciones de un clásico” (18/05/2021): “Celestina: un clásico en escena desde España”

I have been very busy these days and have not had the chance to devote a few minutes to the blog, so that I had not linked the recording of María Bastianes’ talk at the conference cycle “La Celestina: Representaciones de un clásico” at the Universidad de Cantabria yet. Here it is for you all to enjoy.

Event: Ciclo La Celestina: Representaciones de un clásico (7th May – 1st June 2021, Aula de Letras – Aulas de Extensión Universitaria, Universidad de Cantabria)

It is a conference cycle open to everyone, specialists and non-specialists, with a clear focus on the pictorial and the stage adaptations of Celestina. Organised by Laura Mier Pérez (Universidad de Cantabria), sessions will take place via Zoom or on-site, at the campus of the Universidad de Cantabria (Av. de los Castros, s/n; 39005 Santander), depending on the evolution of the COVID-19 measures.

Provisional programme of “From Celestina to Celestina’s House: Archetypes Old and New in Hispanic and Luso-Afro-Brazilian Cultures”, 19th WISPS Annual Conference (2nd-3rd November 2018, University of London)

celestinas20houseThe provisional programme of the 19th WISPS Annual Conference “From Celestina to Celestina’s House: Archetypes Old and New in Hispanic and Luso-Afro-Brazilian Cultures” (2nd-3rd November 2018, University of London) is now available at the registration website.

On Monday, an updated version will be uploaded, but this first one creates enough anticipation on its own.

Unexpectedly, there only is one session exclusively devoted to Celestina, but, it couldn’t be any other way, the keynote lecture by Dorothy Severin deals with Celestina as well. The other sessions are devoted to male and female literary archetypes, of all times and the whole Luso-Hispanic world, but I am particularly curious about the paper by Lesley Twomey “Joanna of Castile’s Prayer Book: Books of Hours and the Fashioning of Temporal Power”.

If you are in London at the beginning of November, and you are interested in Celestina, you cannot miss this conference!
