Key Research Topics:  17th-My research is generally focussed on the Spanish Golden Age (16th & 17th Cent.) and more specifically on textual criticism of literary works from that period. Textual criticism is the process of restoring, editing and annotating adulterated texts from previous centuries for the modern reader. Thus far I have focussed on plays by Pedro Calderón de la Barca (1600-1681), but I am beginning work on a critical edition of a Spanish fencing treatise by Jerónimo de Carranza (¿1539-1608?). I have also done work 17th century Spanish theatrical staging.My research is generally focussed on the Spanish Golden Age (16th & 17th Cent.) and more specifically on textual criticism of literary works from that period.

Tabitha Spagnolo (French)        

office: C-554  email: spagnolo@uleth.ca  phone: 403-329-2420

  Key Research Topics: 17th-century French Studies; Literature; Theatre; Gender & Identity; Transvestism in Theatre; Education of Early Modern Women; Masculinity & Monarchy; Violence & Vengeance.

My research centers on the broad exploration of gender and identity in seventeenth-century French literature, theatre, and culture with a focus on the performance of transvestism on stage and through a few choice examples of cross-dressing as lived experience.  I am also exploring a new dimension of transvestite theatre, considering the role and implications of violence within complex scenarios that frequently confound and conflate issues of gender identification while tending to deconstruct conventional seventeenth-century views of the traditional power structure governing the sexes.  I also work on the Querelle des femmes and women’s education in Early-Modern France.
