Rethinking Baroque Women: 40 years after The Invisible Mistress.
Since its publication in 1976, Frederick A. de Armas's The Invisible Mistress has been the starting point for many current studies in Early Modern Iberian Theater. This panel seeks to acknowledge in particular his contribution in the development of women's studies in the Spanish Golden Age by discussing the interplay of arts, emotions, gender and mythology in the canonical or non-canonical analyses of Early Modern Iberian plays. Thus we are looking for presenters that engage with the theme/title of this panel by suggesting or showing new approaches or future directions for our understanding of
1. Public Faces and Gender Roles 

 2. Science of the unknown, magic and the art of Seduction 

3. Language of emotions and feelings (love, empathy, anger, hate, forgiveness, sympathy, revenge, shame, etc.)

4. Myth and use of ekphrasis

Please submit a 150-word abstract to Carmela Mattza, Louisiana State University, by May 26, 2017.
