My schedule this semester is highly fluid, due to family commitments (babies take a lot of your time). I have office hours on Tuesday and Thursday from 11:00-12:30 and am also available by appointment.  The best way to get in touch with me is to send e-mail.



My area of research is Spanish Golden Age (Siglo de Oro) theater.  I  am especially interested in contemporary performances of the Comedia.
  My colleague Bonnie Gasior (Cal State -Long Beach) and I  recently edited a volume of essays titled Crosscurrents: Transatlantic Perspectives on Early Modern Hispanic Drama
A list of my publications will be available soon.
I'm a member of the Association for Hispanic Classical Theater, Inc. (AHCT)   and have sat on the Board of Directors for six years. We meet yearly in El Paso, TX, the site of the Siglo de Oro drama festival at the Chamizal National Memorial  and the AHCT's concurrent conference. 

As a guide to the AHCT's video archives, which contain video-taped recordings of the productions staged at Chamizal, I am preparing an annotated list of all the plays performed at the festival.  This will make it possible to locate performances by author, director, year, group, nationality and other characteristics of the staging. It will also indicate the quality (sound/visual)  of the recording.  My goal is to help scholars use this wonderful resource (the tape collection) effectively and efficiently and, ultimately, to advance research in the area of Comedia performance studies.  As a first step, the list is available here in a searchable format. Feel free to use it and send me feedback!
