FaculTea Lecture Series – featuring Dr. Katherine Ford
Please join us for our next FaculTea Lecture Series on Mon., Mar. 26 at 3:30 p.m. in room 2409, located on the second floor of Joyner Library.
Dr. Katherine Ford, associate professor of Hispanic Studies will discuss her recently published book, The Theater of Revisions in the Hispanic Caribbean.
Dr. Ford explores the textured process of rewriting theatrical works in the Spanish-speaking Caribbean. Tracing these themes through community theater groups, ancient Greek theater, religious traditions, and national historical events, Ford weaves script, performance and final product together with an eye to the social significance of revision. Ultimately, to rewrite and revise is to re-envision and re-imagine stage practices in the twentieth-century Hispanic Caribbean.
