This project focuses on the curation of a virtual reality exhibition, hosted by Artsteps, to reevaluate the Spanish Golden Age literary canon through the exploration of the richness and diversity of female authorship in the 16th and 17th century. A bilingual adaptation of Ana Caro’s “El conde Partinuplés”, written by one of the most important but largely ignored authors in the 17th century, will be the centerpiece of the project.
Inspired by a recent exhibition from the Cervantes Institute and the Spanish National Library, this virtual gallery constitutes a collaborative and creative space where students discuss and reflect on how these writers try to articulate their identity as women and authors through their different use of rhetorical practices, literary conventions, and multiple forms of textual production.
The bilingual adaptation of Ana Caro’s “El conde Partinuplés” will follow the European Easy-to-Read and the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) standards. Esther Pérez Arribas, renowned playwright and specialist in adaptations of 17th century plays for young audiences, will contribute to the project with a dramatization of some of the scenes from the adaptation of “El conde Partinuplés”.
