A five-week seminar in Spanish for fifteen Spanish teachers to study dramatic literature and art on site in Madrid, Spain.

The seminar will be held in Madrid, Spain with the explicit support and active collaboration of personnel in the Prado Museum. We will explore the relationships between history, art and literature through reading and informal performance of plays by Calderon de la Barca, Lope de Vega, Buero Vallejo, Alberti and Arrabal. These plays either inspired or were inspired by masterworks of art created by Velazquez, Maino, Goya and Picasso. We conclude our experience with a conversation with novelist Paloma Diaz Mas about her book, EL SUENO DE VENECIA (1992) that summarizes the themes treated in the earlier works. Regular excursions to Toledo, Segovia, Avila and Salamanca will enhance our exploration of Spanish art and its contexts. A special highlight will include a visit to the vault in the historic library at the University of Salamanca where our teachers will be able to handle some of the most significant bibliographic treasures in Spain.
