The departments of Modern Languages and Literatures, and Visual and Performing Arts present a lecture on Cervantes, “Beyond Words: On Cervantes’s Neobaroque.” Dr. Ana María Laguna, Associate Professor of Spanish at Rutgers University-Camden, will speak on how Cervantes’s Don Quixote reflects three preeminent elements of his world related to a visual culture: the conflicting ideas of beauty of the Cinquecento, the propagandistic usages of art by the Habsburgs, and the theological implications of the iconoclastic crises of the 1500s. This lecture is open to the Riverdale community.
