Baroque playwrights took full advantage of the actor Juan Rana's well-known queerness to subvert implicitly and explicitly the social norms of sexual and gender identity still questioned today. Course will examine Spanish Baroque short theatre in general and historically contextualize its subversion of social, sexual, gender, and patriarchal norms.
