Muses of the Land will spotlight how Spain and Latin America have engaged with their Greek and Latin cultural heritage. Despite the fact that this heritage has been central to many aspects of the cultural life of the region, it has received little consideration in the English-speaking world, where the idea that Latin American is a "non-western" civilization still has some currency. Recent panels at academic conferences in the United States, however, have begun to explore the influence of this heritage in the literature, film, and drama. Our conference seeks to expand the panorama of scholarly perspectives by inviting representatives from other academic fields to enter the conversation. We selected a group of papers from various fields (history, art, classics, and Spanish literature) that not only showcase the variety of forms assumed by classical reception in the Spanish-speaking world, but also spotlight the challenges facing the study of this topic that might be specific to this particular cultural milieu.

Professor Bravo received a RASA award from the University of Maryland graduate school for spring 2015. The award will enable Professor Bravo to spend the semester on focused research for a book on ancient Greek funeral games and their relation to the construction of social memory.
