The 2015-16 Obermann Humanities Symposium will focus both on Don Quixote in its 17th-century context and also on its long afterlife in world culture, including translation and adaptation to various media. The symposium will feature panel discussions, lectures and presentations by some of the most prestigious specialists in Spanish, Latin American, and global culture. In keeping with University of Iowa’s efforts to engage the growing Latino community in Iowa, the symposium will include a range of activities beyond the purely academic, in Spanish and English.
