Biography

Ryan Prendergast’s research focuses on the representation of identity and difference (religious, cultural, political) in 16th and 17th -century Spain and Spanish America. His current project analyzes early modern Spanish theater’s entremés as a marginal space used to critique Catholic Spain’s religious and cultural norms. He is also exploring Alonso de Castillo Solózano’s literary representation of class and gender.
