Reimagining the Spanish Comedia in the Transmedia Age

Conferences & Symposia

A recent conference at hosted by Denison, “Reimagining the Spanish Comedia in the Transmedia Age” explored Hispanic classical theater to make it more relevant.

An Ohio University article notes:

“As the conference, students attended a theater production by the Spanish company Morfeo Teatro and a theater workshop by Francisco Plaza, director of the Teatro de Rojas in Toledo, Spain.

“The students are enrolled in a graduate seminar in the Modern Languages Department that studies the representation of different ethnic groups in the Spanish theater during the 16th and 17th centuries.

“' This has been a great opportunity for our students,' says Dr. Melissa Figueroa, Assistant Professor of Spanish, who teaches the course. 'The symposium allowed them to be part of a discussion about the digital humanities, adaptations, translations, and new pedagogical approaches to teaching the Spanish comedia.'
