On loan from the Department of World Languages and Literatures, Grace Burton is a student of Early Modern Spanish theater, including the works of Tirso de Molina, Lope de Vega, Calderón de la Barca, and Miguel de Cervantes. Her work focuses on the intersection of painting, politics, and theater, and on Early Modern conceptions of nothing, be that nothing physical, mathematical, philosophical or theatrical.
