Profesor Myrna Vélez Retiring after 35 Years

It is with deep regret but warm wishes that the Department of Spanish and Portuguese announces the retirement of Myrna Vélez. Myrna has taught with us for 35 exceptional years. Her knowledge, wisdom, kindness, and humor has touched the lives of students, faculty, and staff alike. We do not know what we will do without her!

A party was held in her honor on June 13th, celebrating her many years with us. Please enjoy our pictures of the event, and join us in wishing Professor Vélez a very happy retirement. 

Many adventures and happiness, Myrna, and a big THANK YOU for all you have done!

Ana Laura Santamaría Lecture

"Transboundary Nature of Mexico's New Theatre"

In Mexico's contemporary theatre landscape, two independent companies stand out, for they base their creative processes on field research and documents of scathing themes that shape Mexico's reality. These companies explore performing art's boundaries with plastic arts, music and a multimedia experience. This lecture deals with the characteristics of both companies. While reflecting on the creation of a new theatre scene that reveints itself by questioning its traditional representational nature.

Rebecca Haidt Lecture

"Scripting the urban working woman in tonadillas and cuplés"

 

The lyric solo of the female worker, that is, the staged sung representation of urban working women's experience, is a performance genre cultivated across multiple types of musical spectacle, from entr'acte tonadillas to género chico to género ínfimo.  This talk will trace connections between the singing of eighteenth-century maja characters, and that of early twentieth-century costureras, modistillas, typists and flower sellers.

 

Rebecca Haidt is a Professor of Iberian Studies at Ohio State University.

 

Her lecture will be on Monday, April 20th at 4:00pm in Rockefeller 002
