(before the 3 pm performance).
BU Professor Jeffrey Mehlman will offer thoughts on The Contemporaneity of ‘The Dangerous Liaisons,’ the before-the-deluge novel that is the opera’s source and its relevance in an age of whistle-blowing, cyber-bullying, love-not-war, and last but perhaps also least, feminism.
Professor Rodrigo Lopes de Barros will be giving an invited talk at Cornell University on Monday, February 6, 2017 at 5:00pm.
Romance Studies’ own Tino Villanueva, who retired from teaching Spanish here in 2015, will be giving a poetry reading for the National Park Service at the Longfellow House, Cambridge, on Sunday, August 21 at 3 pm, together with poet, scholar, and translator from Yiddish Kathryn Hellerstein. They will read poems in Spanish, English and Yiddish on the lawn of one of the earliest Americans to enjoy and translate Spanish and Spanish American poetry.
