The Department of Spanish and Portuguese is pleased to announce the visit of David T. Gies, Commonwealth Professor of Spanish at the University of Virginia. An expert on the literature of Enlightenment and Romantic Spain and contemporary Spanish film, Professor Gies will give a lecture entitled "La Pepa Goes to the Theater," in which he will discuss how playwrights struggled to explain to a confused and needy public the meaning of the newly proclaimed Spanish Constitution of 1812, known as "La Pepa."
