The Department of Spanish and Portuguese was pleased to welcome Dr. Cristián Opazo, Associate Professor of Literature from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, for an exciting event on Friday, February 3, 2017.
Dr. Opazo is currently working on his third book titled, Repertorios clandestinos: dramaturgia, masculinidad y underground, which analyzes the works of Chilean dramatists Ramón Griffero, Andrés Pérez, and Jorge Díaz.

The presentation examined three cultural mediums: photography, theatrical manuscript, and audio visual materials.
