Creating Texts, Breaking the Rules: Galdosian Narratives (at SAMLA 92) 

On this the year when we commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of Benito Pérez Galdós, we welcome proposals on any topic that explores scenarios where the author’s creativity may be perceived as breaking the rules. This panel seeks works that examine the novel of the Serie contemporánea whose protagonists are seen as rebellious in Nineteenth century society. Proposals that address any cultural aspect (historical, political, religious, economic, etc.) are welcome. Please send an abstract of 200-300 words by July 24, 2020, a brief bio, and A/V requirements to Patricia Orozco, University of Mary Washington, at morozco@umw.edu
