Author Spotlight (Vol. 7): Czarina Lagarda L贸pez

馃帀 Enhorabuena to this week’s Author Spotlight, Czarina Lagarda L贸pez!

Czarina’s article “La risa en el barroco espa帽ol del siglo XVII: El buf贸n en im谩genes de Vel谩zquez, 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 Vel谩zquez, 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.
