February 23, 2011

The Catalan Center of NYU will host a number of special events in March, including a weekly Catalan film series; an artist talk with Ester Partegàs on March 4;  and an academic symposium, “Beyond Don Juan: Rethinking Iberian Masculinities,” on March 30-April 1. All events are free and open to the public, and take place at the King Juan Carlos Center auditorium, 53 Washington Square South.  For further information, call 212.998.8255 or visit

A schedule of events follows:

Artist Talk—Ester Partegà
Fri., March 4, 6:30 p.m.

Ester Partegàs holds an MFA from the Universitat de Barcelona and has completed postgraduate studies in multimedia from Hochschule der Kunste, Berlin. “My work is based on sculptural practice that freely incorporates different media such as drawing, photography, installation, video, and painting,” she writes. “I am interested in the odd glamour of the marginal and the discarded, the possibilities of multiple perspectives on a single subject.”

Academic Conference -- Beyond Don Juan: Rethinking Iberian Masculinities
Weds., March 30 through Fri., April 1

Beyond Don Juan: Rethinking Iberian Masculinities will bring together scholars from diverse fields to focus on archetypes of masculinity from medieval Iberia to the present. The Iberian peninsula has produced hypermasculine archetypes such as El Cid and Don Juan or iconic personages such as the bullfighter or the hidalgo. The conference will seek to explore alternative models for being a man which examine or challenge the traditional links between machismo and Hispanic culture.
