Fialdini-Zambrano publishes 'Carmen Resino and Sabina Berman: Dialogues from the Spanish Inquisition'
Submitted by Dr. Rossana Fialdini-Zambrano
Rossana Fialdini-Zambrano has published a new article, "Carmen Resino and Sabina Berman: Dialogues from the Spanish Inquisition." The article is about two plays that represent the Spanish Inquisition, from a contemporary perspective.
The article is published by the prestigious Hecho Teatral, a scholarly peer-reviewed journal about Hispanic theatre. In the article, Fialdini-Zambrano confronts the representation of Spanish Inquisition by two well-known women playwrights from both sides of the Atlantic. Both dramatists reread the past to offer multiple centres of contemporary audience identification by reversing established legends and turning historical figures into living human beings with modern voices.
