This month Christopher Swift, Humanities Department, will present “Performing Empire: Ritual, Spectacle, and Theatre in Late Medieval Seville” In this talk, theatre historian Christopher Swift discusses the upcoming publication of his monograph. “Performing Empire” traces an historical arc during the period of Christian rule of Seville from 1248 to the conquest of the New World, arguing that public performance was a vital means for Christians, Jews, and Muslims to negotiate and reform interreligious relationships, enact social controls, and preserve communal memories. “Performing Empire” investigates the accumulation of affects and signs in the play space of theatre and the very real consequences of these creative explorations across three centuries of Castilian hegemony and empire-building.
