Julia Domínguez, associate professor of Spanish, published an article “Cervantes and the Mother of the Muses: Views of Memory in Early Modern Spain.”
The article was published in the recently released book, “Cervantes and the Early Modern Mind.”
The book explores the work of Cervantes in relation to the ideas about the mind that circulated in early modern Europe.
The editors bring together humanists and scientists: literary scholars and doctors whose interdisciplinary research integrates diverse types of sources alongside Cervantes’s works to examine themes and areas. Their chapters trace the cognitive themes and points of inquiry that Cervantes shares with other early modern thinkers, showing how he both echoes and contributes to early modern views of the mind.
