"Identidades múltiples y agencias culturales en la construcción de la biografía de Juan de Espinosa Medrano (¿1629?-1688)"

Professor Rodriguez Garrido is a noted scholar of the literature of colonial Peru. He will offer new critical perspectives for contemplating the life and work of Juan de Espinosa Medrano (circa 1629 - 1688), who rendered the Baroque poetics of Luis de Góngora into a distinctly American literary style and also adapted European dramatic models in the earliest Quechua theater.
