Spanish majors publish new translation of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz

Please join us in congratulating two Spanish majors, Kate Eagen (3rd year) and Lisa Trinh (3rd year), on the publication of their critical translation of Sor Juana's most famous redondilla, "hombres necios."
 
Their work, one of the few English translations that preserves the ABBA rhyme scheme of the original poem, includes more than 30 explanatory footnotes and a thoughtful discussion on translation methods.
 

Spanish major receives Harrison Research award

Congratulations to Jack Brake (CLAS 2018) on being one of 44 students honored with the Harrison Undergraduate Research Award in 2016! With this support, Jack is engaging in a multi-study of convivencia between and among Christians, Jews, and Muslims in medieval Spain. His study of material records of spaces of worship, especially the architectural elements of Visigoth churches that were constructed between 711 and 1492, engages with long-standing historiographies in Iberian religious life.

It is based on Sandow Birk's graphic novel, which was in turn based on Dante's Inferno, and features the voices of Dermot Mulroney (Mozart in the Jungle), James Cromwell (Babe, LA Confidential), and Scott Adsit (30 Rock), among others. It is an updated version of Inferno, with an American setting.
