As we enter another Cervantine Anniversary, marking in 2017 the 400 years in print of Los Trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda [The Labors of Persiles and Sigismunda], members of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures of Harvard University gather to share the work that has grown out of their academic and personal experience with Cervantes’ fictions. Three panels featuring individual presentations and discussion will be followed by reading by María Gómez Lara (winner of the prestigious Loewe Prize for Young Poets) from her unpublished collection, Voces del Quijote. (In English and Spanish).
