Ruiz covers a range of festival categories: carnival, royal entries, tournaments, calendrical and noncalendrical celebrations, autos de fe, and Corpus Christi processions. He probes the ritual meanings of these events, paying special attention to the use of colors and symbols, and to the power relations articulated through these festive displays. Ruiz argues that the fluid and at times subversive character of medieval festivals gave way to highly formalized and hierarchical events reflecting a broader shift in how power was articulated in late medieval and early modern Spain. Yet Ruiz contends that these festivals, while they sought to buttress authority and instruct different social orders about hierarchies of power, also served as sites of contestation, dialogue, and resistance.
WHENEVER: A time travel romance Ever have to give a suck-tastic speech? Hayley does. In front of a Prince no less. As Hayley polishes off her Building Blocks of DNA speech, an idea hits her: Use the hot, visiting royal prince in her demonstration. Stand close to his highness-the untouchable. Go over his traits. Touch him. Win the crowd. Stomp all over Trallwyn Prep. Yes! No. The more she talks, the closer she comes to exposing a hurricane-sized secret--the stunning Irish prince may not be a prince at all. In fact, a fellow Trallwyn High School senior may be the true heir to the throne. Saying, "I'm sorry" isn't enough. Not for Prince Callum and not for the danger she's brought down on her team. Hayley will have to visit Ireland to discover the truth. Ireland: a land of tragic trinities, ancient artifacts, and time travel. Time Travel with a Prince! When she lands in medieval Ireland, getting the truth comes in second to getting home. www.EmilyEvansBooks.com
