We were delighted to host Dr Erin K. Hogan’s talk “The Ventriloquism of Altar Boys in Spanish Cinema from Joselito in The Little Nightingale (del Amo 1956) to Ignacio in Bad Education (Almodóvar 2004)” at Royal Holloway on the 16th of March, 2016.
Dr. Erin K. Hogan is an Assistant Professor of Spanish at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC). Her research focuses on the representations and biopolitics of children in contemporary Spain. Professor Hogan’s broader interests include Hispanic cinema and the portrayal of human rights and interculturality. She is preparing a book manuscript that approaches narratives of appropriation of the child and the cine con niño film genre through the metaphorical and theoretical lenses of ventriloquism and biopower.
