García-ReidyI specialize in early modern Spanish literature and culture, especially in relation to theater, manuscript studies, Digital Humanities, and the work of Lope de Vega. My interest in theater of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries focuses not only on the dramatic texts, but also on the performative aspect of theater and the social practices related to this type of show business. My book Las musas rameras. Oficio dramático y conciencia profesional en Lope de Vega examines the development of professional playwriting in early modern Spain and the way it affected the image that Lope de Vega, the most successful and revolutionary playwright of his time, projected of himself as a writer. I also participate in the development of digital tools useful for the research and teaching of early modern Spanish theater, and have prepared several critical plays by Agustín Moreto and Lope de Vega (including annotated editions of his masterpiece El castigo sin venganza and his recovered play Mujeres y criados). I am PI of the project “Manos. Base de datos de manuscritos teatrales” (MCIU/AEI/FEDER, EU, with reference PGC2018-096004-A-100), related to the database MANOS (manos.net).
