Christopher C. Oechler

Gettysburg College

Christopher C. Oechler, Associate Professor of Spanish at Gettysburg College, holds a Ph.D. in Golden Age Spanish Literature from the Pennsylvania State University and an M.A. in Spanish Literatures and Cultures from New York University in Madrid. Professor Oechler’s research and teaching interests include Golden Age culture, history, and literature, especially theater (on the page and in performance) as well as the continuing appeal of Golden Age texts and plays in the 20th and 21st centuries. He has published articles that emphasize the ideas of performance and history in literary works, and his current research explores the connections between different forms of historical thought and Golden Age plays that dramatize Spain’s national past. He is particularly interested in analyzing the political, cultural, and historiographical implications of staging Lope de Vega’s play Fuente Ovejuna during the years surrounding the Spanish Civil War. Professor Oechler is also currently working with a team of Gettysburg College students to create a virtual-reality model of a seventeenth-century Spanish playhouse, the Corral del Príncipe.
