Animal Dialogues


Animal Dialogues explores Hispanic cultural productions with animal protagonism. This page contains canonical fictional pieces that include moral lessons and reflections between animals and humans. These stories touch upon the cultural life of the authors and the animals they write about. Through them, we are able to appreciate the cultural insights that each author provides to create awareness about the presence of animals in human communities from the Spanish speaking world. In our exhibit, we also include illustrations, images, and additional materials to further facilitate comprehension.

Feminist Revivals makes English translations of historical feminist plays from Latin America available to researchers, educators, advocates, and the general public. We include relevant images, content descriptions, pdfs, and references to the original Spanish-language text.

All translations in Feminist Revivals are created collectively under the direction of May Summer Farnsworth at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. We make our decisions through discussion and consensus and we share authorship. Each script goes through extensive drafts, revisions, and dramatic readings before we settle on our final English version.
