Multicultural Cervantes

Editor:Prof. Juan de Dios Torralbo Caballero (University of Córdoba, English Studies)

Last year’s commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Cervantes’s death (in April 1616) was, according to the BBC or The Guardian, overshadowed by the scope of the program marking Shakespeare’s death. Therefore, the aim of this special issue is to extend Cervantes quadricentennial festivities beyond the international congress “Cervantes from Andalusia, 1547 to 2016,” held in Castro del Río (Córdoba) from November 29 to December 2 last year.
