The RSA Division in Hispanic Literature and the Cervantes Society of America (CSA) invite proposals for the following panel:

Practice, purpose, and message: from allegorical plays to derisive jest and missionary theater. Autos sacramentales, juegos de escarnio, entremeses, mitotes, areites, and comedias: what did these works mean to the people who staged them, and how were they received? Did their place of representation in the New World distinguish them from Old World theatrical performances?

 Submission of proposals:

Please indicate the name of the panel that interests you and send a single page that has both an abstract of less than 150 words and a brief curriculum vitae to both organizers: Susan Byrne (susan.byrne[at] and David A. Boruchoff (david.boruchoff[at] See the guidelines for CVs on the RSA’s annual meeting page.

Proposals must be received by Monday, 29 May 2017.

Please note: Presentations may be made in English (the primary language of the RSA) or in Spanish, and should bear in mind the interdisciplinary makeup of the RSA, as well as the need to be intelligible to scholars whose primary interests and expertise may lie outside the Spanish-speaking world. The title and abstract must be written in the language in which the presentation will be given.
