Audio recording of Kenneth Brown’s talk at La Puebla de Montalbán (20/10/2023) and something extra

Radio Puebla has been extremely quick at uploading the audio recording of Kenneth Brown’s talk of last Friday at the Museo La Celestina (La Puebla de Montalbán). You can listen to it at their official website or below.

While checking if the audio recording was already available, I have noticed that the roundtable on marginality and Celestina of the last Festival Celestina (11/08/2023) is also available at their official website, but you can also listen to it below.

Talk: Kenneth Brown on Fernando de Rojas at Museo La Celestina (La Puebla de Montalbán, 20/10/2023)

Next Friday, 20th of October of 2023, Kenneth Brown (University of Calgary) will be giving a lecture entitled “El mundo judío y criptojudío de Fernando de Rojas y de su obra La Celestina” at the Museo La Celestina in La Puebla de Montalbán (Spain).

This event is organised by the local journal Crónicas and the cultural association Las Cumbres de Montalbán, who are responsible for organising the academic roundtables and papers within the context the annual Festival Celestina, as well.

La Puebla de Montalbán seems to be progressively increasing the amount of events of celestinesque interest that take place in the Museo La Celestina, so that I would keep an eye on its future activities. It looks like as if the local institutions were actively trying to turn La Puebla de Montalbán into a relevant spot for celestinesque scholars and other people interested in Celestina. Let’s hope I am not wrong!

Open access publication of celestinesque interest

As usual, the Centro Virtual Cervantes has made the conference proceedings of the VI Congreso Internacional Juan Ruiz, Arcipreste de Hita, y el Libro de buen amor «Mujer, saber y heterodoxia: Libro de buen amor, La Celestina y La Lozana andaluza» available online. There are several contributions of celestinesque interest:

Tomorrow (12/07/2021): Two papers of celestinesque interest at the 17th Biennial Conference of the Early Book Society

As part of the 17th Biennial Conference of the Early Book Society, which will be taking place the days 12th to 16th of July via Zoom, a whole session on Celestina entitled “Woodcuts of Calisto and Melibea” has been scheduled for Monday, 12th of July, at 17:00 (British time, 18:00 in continental Europe). In it, Ana Milagros Jiménez Ruiz (Universidad de Zaragoza) and Amaranta Saguar García (Universidad Complutense) will be taking about the woodcuts of, respectively, the Tragicomedia and the Comedia.

More concretely, Jiménez Ruiz will be presenting her paper “Tragicomedy of Calisto and Melibea: a mixed-woodcut testimony”, in which she analyses the woodcuts of the edition Sevilla [but Rome], [Marcello Silber], 1502 [but 1515-1516] from the point of view of the reception of Celestina in Italy.

In turn, Amaranta Saguar García will be reading her paper “The lost woodcut(s) of the Burgos: Fadrique de Basilea, 1499 (but 1500-1501) edition of the Comedia de Calisto y Melibea. A temptative reconstruction”, in which she will show that the hypothesis of the Burgos Comedia missing an unsigned gathering of four leaves at the beginning is not that unlikely if full-page woodcuts like those included in Johannes Grüninger’s 1496 edition of Terence’s Comoediae are taken into account. (Yes, I know that the conference abstract says something completely different but… one thing is where you think research is going to take you and a different thing is where research does in fact take you).
