USD Hosts Humanities Research Forum Nov 29
Turner’s talk will discuss the need to be someone else, linking current performance art to similar impulses by the Spanish playwright Tirso de Molina.
“We have always been fascinated by disguise and the chance to be someone else. Current performers such as Lady Gaga thrive on it, but she had her counterparts in Spanish classical theater,” said Turner.
The event will investigate what contemporary performance artists can teach us about early modern Spanish theater and human nature.
Turner’s main teaching interests are Spanish literature and culture and science fiction. He holds a doctorate in Spanish from Vanderbilt University.
