Biography

Associate Professor of Early Modern Literature

Juan Pablo Gil-Osle completed his doctorate at the University of Chicago, and is currently an associate professor of Spanish Early Modern literature at Arizona State University, Tempe, after having held positions at the University of Michigan, and Arkansas State University.  

Research Interests

Juan Pablo Gil-Osle's recent publications focus on the representations of patronage and friendship in early modern culture, on the relationship between word and image, and on gender studies.

His last book is entitled Los cigarrales de la privanza y el mecenazgo en Tirso de Molina (2016). The topic of this monograph on Cigarrales de Toledo is the interconnection between representations of male friendship, economic patronage systems, and privado political thought in the first published book by Tirso de Molina. Los cigarrales del mecenazgo is based on archival research and offers an unprecedented study of the Pimentel family’s role in Tirso’s life. It focuses on Tirso de Molina’s most astonishing patron: don Luís Suero de Quiñones y Acuña. Being a relatively poor member of the powerful Pimentel family, he appears both in the images on the cover page of Cigarrales de Toledo, and as a character in the text, while his painting collections became famous in the European art market. The representations of friendship, patronage, and privanza are fundamental to the literature of the first half of the seventeenth century; as a whole, they form a powerful tool to analyze the miscellaneous Cigarrales de Toledo as a unit of great importance in Tirso’s literary career. 

In the book Amistades imperfectas: del Humanismo a la Ilustración (2012), 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.
