Dance Studies and Digital Humanities: A GIS for La Argentina’s Ballets Espagnols

Invited Speaker: Blanca Gómez Cifuentes

Blanca Gómez Cifuentes, doctoral candidate in the History of Art at Complutense University of Madrid (Spain), presents the results of the research project on the Ballets Espagnols de Antonia Mercé La Argentina, a dance company active between 1927 and 1929 that adapted the model of Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes to a repertoire based on the construction of a national identity through the modern and avant-garde aesthetics of interwar Europe. Thanks to the systematization of the preserved sources and their visualization in interactive maps, search results show the location, access and visualization of the geo-referenced scientific information.

Presented collaboratively with the Graduate Student Association for Visual Culture and the Department of Art History in the College of Arts and Architecture.
