Don Quixote in the American West: A Fourth-Centenary Celebration (1615–2015)

Researcher(s): Conxita Domènech

Department(s): Modern and Classical Languages

WIHR Research Presentation: Wednesday, April 29 at 3:10 p.m. in Classroom 215

Abstract: Don Quixote is often read, especially, though not exclusively in the Hispanic tradition, as a vital key to understanding humanity, not to mention, the humanities. Unfortunately, our comprehension of a multitude of aspects of this “key” remains incomplete, even obscure: particularly the Second Part of Don Quixote (1615) suffers from a relative lack of critical interest and requires further analysis. That is why our project includes: 1) an international conference in April 2015, featuring lectures by some of the most distinguished Cervantes scholars, to be held at the University of Wyoming and the University of Colorado Denver, and 2) the publication of a collection of essays focusing on Part Two, written by renowned Cervantes experts.  We hope these endeavors will shed additional light on Part Two of Don Quixote, attracting regional and international attention to Cervantes’ text, impacting the way it will be read from now on.
