Robert Bayliss (PhD in Hispanic Literature and Comparative Literature, Indiana University) has published articles in several journals including Hispanic Review, Comparative Drama, Hispania and Comparative Literature Studies. His book, The Discourse of Courtly Love in Seventeenth-Century Spanish Theater, was published in 2008 by Bucknell University Press. His forthcoming book The Spanish Golden Age: The Currency of Cultural Patrimony addresses the ways in which the literary "classics" of Spain's Golden Age are adapted, appropriated and consumed in contemporary Spain. His current research is focused on how the cultural patrimony of the Spanish Golden Age circulates in Latin America.
