Dr. Jared White
Assistant Professor of Spanish
B.A., M.A. Brigham Young University; Ph.D. University of California, Irvine (2015)
Dr. White's major academic interest is Spanish theater, stemming from the Golden Age to contemporary forms. In the past, he has both acted in and written about Spanish comedias, including El caballero de Olmedo, Las cortes de la muerte, El narciso en su opinión, and El retrato vivo. In addition to several play reviews, he has published peer-reviewed articles on El burlador de Sevilla and the legend of La Cava in Gestos and MLN, respectively. His current research topics include Golden Age reinterpretations of Juan Manuel's El conde Lucanor; Valle-Inclán's metaphorical and literal usage of wolves in his poetry, prose, and dramatic works; and Albert Camus's translation and performance of two full-length plays by Calderón de la Barca (La devoción de la cruz) and Lope de Vega (El caballero de Olmedo).
