In Women’s Words: Feminist Literary Discourse in Spain and the Americas

Bethania Guerra de Lemos, PhD.

Course focuses on 20th century transatlantic texts authored by women. Course scrutinizes the notion of women’s script, and studies representative “feminine” texts alongside diverse non-canonical feminist literary production. In order to discern the epistemic relevance of “feminist literature” (as opposed to “feminine”) course relies on framework of feminist political texts, both Hispanic and non-Hispanic. Specific topics, such as the second wave feminist movement in the US, and the intersection of race, class, gender and sexual orientation will occupy a central place in the course. Course includes film as part of the inquiry into feminist cultural-artistic production.
