Research Activity

Juan Pablo Gil-Osle's recent publications focus on the representations of friendship in early modern culture, on the relationship between word and image, and on gender studies. In the book Amistades imperfectas: del Humanismo a la Ilustración, Gil-Osle explores similarities and divergences between pre-modern and modern social models of friendship. His emphasis on the connection between early modern transformations of the institution of friendship and the opposition between current, contrasting social models grounded in solidarity, on the one hand, and individualism, on the other, makes the book relevant to a deeper understanding of the history of intellectual debates on neo-liberal and welfare policies in the USA and Europe. In addition, Gil-Osle’s interest in visual and digital portrayals of the Golden Age has resulted in his presidency of the Early Modern Image and Text Society (Emit Society), and his co-editorship of the journal Laberinto. Upcoming projects include a book about gender and visual culture in the representation of early modern friendship, a monograph on patronage in Tirso de Molina’s Los Cigarrales de Toledo, and a number of publications on the matrix between new media commemorations of Spanish and Basque early modern culture, history, and nationhood.

En sus recientes publicaciones, Juan Pablo Gil-Osle se interesa por las representaciones de la amistad en la cultura de la temprana modernidad, al igual que las relaciones entre la imagen, la palabra y los nuevos medios de comunicación, además de incorporar los estudios de género a sus análisis. En su libro las Amistades imperfectas: del Humanismo a la Ilustración con Cervantes analiza las representaciones de la amicitia en Cervantes con las conexiones entre los discursos de amistad premodernos y con los modelos sociales tanto solidarios como individualistas de la modernidad. El énfasis en las conexiones entre los cambios en la noción de la amistad en la temprana modernidad y la oposición entre los modelos sociales solidarios e individualistas hacen de este libro una referencia necesaria para profundizar en el actual debate sobre las políticas neo-liberales y del estado del bienestar que inundan los discursos políticos de Estados Unidos y Europa. Además, su interés por la imagen y los nuevos medios de comunicación en conexión con la cultura del Siglo de Oro, le ha llevado a ser director del Early Modern Image and Text Society (Emit Society) y coeditor de la revista Laberinto. Sus próximos proyectos son un libro sobre el género y la visualidad en la amistad de la temprana modernidad, y otro sobre el mecenazgo en los Cigarrales de Toledo de Tirso de Molina, al igual que una serie de publicaciones sobre las imbricaciones entre conmemoraciones de la cultura e historia españolas de la temprana modernidad, new media y nacionalismo.
