Cervantine Dialogue

Posted By Susan Byrne, Monday, May 1, 2017
Updated: Wednesday, May 17, 2017

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

In the prologue to his Ocho comedias y ocho entremeses (1615), Cervantes recalls the simplicity of theater in his youth, casting aside the ornate costumes, scenarios, and devices of the comedia nueva to give pride of place to dialogue. In Don Quijote (1605), his hero returns home after only five chapters, so that he might sally forth again with Sancho Panza, an interlocutor who assumes many of the functions performed until then by the narrator. We welcome proposals that address the artistic, structural, documentary, and social dimensions of dialogue in Cervantes’s writings.

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 byMonday, 29 May 2017.

Please note: Presentations may be made in English or in Spanish. The title and abstract must be written in the language in which the presentation will be given.

To present in a session sponsored by the CSA, you must be or become an up-to-date member of the CSA.
