Spanish and Portuguese (Peninsular) II

Session Chair: 
Joan Hoffman, Western Washington University
Session 9: Sunday 11:45 am – 1:15 pm
Bond Hall 109


  1. Daniel Herrera Cepero, California State University, Long Beach
    This paper analyzes, through a Marxist critique, how "La pata de palo," by Espronceda, proposes a scathing mockery to capitalism, whose ravages the author saw first-hand during his exile in London and Paris, emphasizing the portrait of fashion as an irrational phenomenon.
  2. Kathleen Connolly, Western Oregon University
    This paper will analyze how Rozalén and other Spanish artists are creating performances that can be transformative in building new interpretive “frames” in Spanish society in which to incorporate Deaf language and culture.
  3. Matthew Greenhalgh, University of California at Riverside
    In my paper, I use Antonio Buero Vallejo’s 1968 play La doble historia del doctor Valmy to demonstrate the consequences of political violence in Franco’s prisons by focusing on how it impacts the wives of the tortured and the torturer.
