On December 14, 2017, while in Madrid directing Colgate’s study group, Professor Fernando Plata delivered a talk to graduate students at the Universidad Complutense. The talk, “Saboyardos, titíes y purichinelas en las mojigangas del mundinovo (de Calderón a Zamora)” dealt with marmosets, Frenchmen, string puppets and other characters that appear in “raree-shows”, a transmedial device used for the first time in Spain in carnival plays of the second half of the 17th century. Recently Professor Plata has published two book chapters on Francisco de Quevedo (1580-1645). The chapters deal with the textual transmission of a satirical piece, La Perinola (The Teetotum), written by Quevedo in 1632, and with Quevedo’s literary connections to his contemporary Luis Vélez de Guevara.
