The yearbook Calderoniano (ACAL) is a journal dedicated monographically to the study of the life and work of Pedro Calderón de la Barca. Founded in 2008, its aim is to gather annually a selection of critical contributions that contribute to a better understanding of the multiple faces of the playwright.

It is one of the publications of the group de research Siglo de Oro (GRISO) of the University of Navarra, in partnership with the group de research Calderón (GIC) of the University of Santiago de Compostela and with the sponsorship of the TC/12 Patrimonio teatral clásico español, in the framework of the Programme "Consolider-Ingenio 2010 ".

This is a business open to all scholars without exclusion of critical schools or limitation of perspectives or approaches. It will be guided only by the scientific rigour of the works it contains, and seeks to serve as a place of meeting for Calderonists of all origins, who will find in its pages a forum in which to discover the direction of the paths of the Calderonian research . 

The news, bibliography and critical reviews sections aim to give a full account of the most recent contributions of the programs of study calderonians on an international level. 

This journal has the guarantee of scientific quality provided by the backing of its committee advisor and the management publishing house carried out by the publishing house Iberoamericana/Vervuert, plus the best will of the members of the committee of essay. 

In this blog you will find updated information on events related to Calderón (congresses, seminars...), regular instalments of the annotated bibliography and, whenever possible, a pdf version of previous issues for your convenience enquiry.

The digital dump of the Calderonian yearbook has been carried out in the framework of the project Consolider TC/12 continued in the project network del Patrimonio Teatral Clásico Español (FFI2015-71441-REDC).

The extraordinary issue of Acal that is presented here brings together a series of articles that function as an updated state of the art on the Calderonian fiestas, as well as incorporating the main lines of research that are being carried out in this field of the theatrical programs of study of the Golden Age.

The contributions offered here are some of those presented at the congress Fiestas calderonianas y comedias de espectáculo en el Siglo de Oro, organised by the group de research Calderón and the GRISO, which took place at the University of Santiago de Compostela on 27, 28 and 29 September 2012. The Compostela academic meeting , which brought together the most significant international specialists in the field of the study of courtly festivals, was born with the goal to create, for three days, a place of discussion around various issues related to the festivals and comedies of spectacle of Calderón de la Barca, with special attention to the mythological genre, forgotten by critics until the eighties of the twentieth century. Its recovery for the field of Calderón's programs of study came at the hands of authors of the stature of John H. Elliott, Margaret R. Greer and Frederick de Armas, whom we had the honour of listening to during a roundtable focused on the meaning of Calderón's festivals. The recording of the interesting and fruitful discussion that took place in this session at congress, which was also attended by Marcella Trambaioli, Maria Grazia Profeti and Santiago Fernández Mosquera, is now offered to the reader on the CD that accompanies and complements the articles reviewed.

bibliography calderoniana 2012


Indexes | abstracts | bibliography calderoniana

The volume presents a new approach of research calderonian : the application of concepts of virtual reality to the work of the golden playwright. The basic idea that unites the various contributions is that some central paradigms of 17th century Baroque culture (life as a dream, the complexity and interrelation of socio-cultural life, etc.) reappear, albeit in a modified form, in the information society of the 21st century. Within this general framework , specific contributions stand out which, among others, develop their own theory of Calderonian virtuality (Juan Luis Suárez, "Para una teoría de la realidad virtual en Calderón") or unify the cultural perceptions of both periods with ideas from cognitive science (Margaret Greer, "Mirror, Neurons, Theatrical Mirrors and the Honor Code").

Indexes | abstracts | bibliography calderoniana

This volume of yearbook Calderoniano, coordinated by Ignacio Arellano and Juan Manuel Escudero, brings together works of very different origins. Most of them are critical contributions on two well-differentiated Calderonian areas.

The first is closely related to his autos sacramentales. And different contributions discussed at the International congress , held in Pamplona on 16 and 17 December 2010, are published in this issue : "Ingenio, teología y drama en los autos de Calderón", organised by the GRISO of the University of Navarra in the framework of the project of autos sacramentales financed by the Subdirección General de Proyectos de research (FFI2008-02319/FILO), co-financed by the FEDER, and which also had the sponsorship of TC-12, Programa Consolider-Ingenio 2010, CSD2009-00033, del Plan Nacional de research Científica, development e Innovación Tecnológica.

The second area is that other, more profane world of Calderon: that of his comedies and tragedies. Here are collected part of the interventions that the most renowned specialists in the Hispanic field were able to contribute in the seminar Calderonian organized by the GIC (group de research Calderoniana) of the University of Santiago de Compostela under the direction of Luis Iglesias Feijoo and Santiago Fernández Mosquera, which was held in mid-June 2010.

Analytical summary/Abstracts


Indexes | abstracts

Promoted by the GRISO of the University of Navarra, in conjunction with the group Calderón de la Barca of the University of Santiago de Compostela and with the sponsorship of the Centro para la Edición de los Clásicos Españoles (CECE), the yearbook Calderoniano is born with the guarantee and scientific backing provided by the members of its committee advisor and has the management publishing house carried out by the publishing house Iberoamericana/Vervuert.

This is a business open to all scholars, without exclusion of critical schools or limitation of perspectives or approaches. It will be guided only by the rigour of the works it contains and seeks to serve as a place of meeting for Calderonists of all origins, who will find in its pages a forum in which to discover where the paths of the Calderonian research are leading.

That is our wish, that is our hope, that is our commitment.
