Christopher D. Gascón, Modern Languages Department, had his article published in a volume on classical Spanish theater from the Golden Age to the 21st century. The essay, titled “Estética Neobarroca en el Teatro Barroco Representado en Nueva York,” demonstrates how numerous productions of classical Spanish plays at New York City’s Repertorio Español incorporate typically Latin American elements, resulting in a theater of “reconquest” or “counter-conquest.” Repertorio’s “New World” approach to “Old World” masterpieces produces innovative stagings and, at times, bold revisions of the works. The volume, published by the Hispanic Seminary of Medieval Studies, is titled El teatro clásico en su(s) cultura(s): de los Siglos de Oro al siglo XXI.
