Mina Garcia, professor of Spanish in the World Languages and Cultures Department, presented at the annual Colloquium of the Renaissance Society of America. The conference, held in person for the first time after COVID, took place in Puerto Rico, from March 9-11.
The Renaissance Society of America is the largest international academic society devoted to the study of the era 1300–1700. Founded in 1954, the RSA has thousands of members around the world. Members include a wide variety of scholars interested in Renaissance studies. The Society produces the Renaissance Quarterly Journal and sponsors publications, fellowships, awards to support research. Its annual meeting brings together scholars from North America and around the world, representing a wide variety of academic disciplines.
Garcia’s roundtable also included Erin Cowling (MacEwen University, Edmonton, AB, Canada), Tania de Miguel Magro (West Virginia University) and Glenda Y. Nieto Cuebas (Ohio Wesleyan University). Together they discussed a new project they are working on about safe spaces for women in Early Modern Spain, or more specifically, the limited spaces that women’s actions and collaborations were able to secure for themselves in a masculine world.
