Join us this Friday, October 2nd, for another exciting talk as part of our Fall Lecture Series. We welcome Matthew Feinberg, he will be talking about Re-Making Madrid: Cultural Ecology and the Spanish Economic Crisis.

Matthew Feinberg holds a PhD in Hispanic Studies from the University of Kentucky. His research studies contemporary Spanish culture with a particular focus on the relationship between theatrical production and urbanism in Madrid’s iconic Lavapiés neighborhood. Combining the analysis of dramatic texts, performance spaces, urban planning documents, and the cultural activities of urban social movements like the indignados or 15-M movement, Professor Feinberg explores how struggles over cultural production are deeply connected to the physical and symbolic shaping of contemporary cities. His work has been published in a range of academic journals including, most recently, the Journal of Spanish Cultural Studies, the Journal of Urban Cultural Studies, and in the forthcoming collection of essays entitled Ethics of Life: Contemporary Iberian Debates. He currently teaches at Case Western Reserve University in the SAGES writing program.

Free and open to the public. Join us from 12-1 pm at the CUDC.
