🎉 Enhorabuena to this week’s Author Spotlight, Czarina Lagarda López!
Czarina’s article “La risa en el barroco español del siglo XVII: El bufón en imágenes de Velázquez, Quevedo y Oquendo” is an innovative and intriguing exploration of “la risa” (laughter) through comparison of critical baroque and cultural studies. In this article, the central source for this laughter comes from the jester of European imperial courts. The author’s analysis is based primarily on works by Diego de Velázquez, Quevedo, and Oquendo, and explores themes of what laughter implies in this context, framed in two types of cultured laughter in Spain, and the popular laughter which was later developed in the baroque of New Spain.
