Professor of Spanish and Humanities
Spanish Department
Division of Literature and Languages

Ariadna García-Bryce earned her BA from Yale University in 1989, majoring in Comparative Literature; she earned her PhD in Spanish Literature from Princeton University in 1997. She works on early modern Spanish literature and culture and has published in peer-reviewed journals on a variety of topics: the relationship between drama, religion, and visual culture; rhetoric, poetics and the construction of social authority; the appropriation of Baroque poetics in twentieth-century Latin America; conceptions of the body and gender construction. Her book, Transcending Textuality: Quevedo and Political Authority in the Age of Print (Pennsylvania State University Press, 2011), examines the connection between political prose and court spectacle in the context of incipient bureaucratization. At Reed, aside from courses in her area of expertise, she teaches Humanities 110, “Introduction to Humanities: Greece and the Ancient Mediterranean”, and Humanities 210, “Early Modern Europe.”
