Feminist Literature in Spain: From the Dictatorship to the Democratic Era
SPAN 259
Spring 2008 not offered
Crosslisting: FGSS 249, COL 259, IBST 313

The emergence of the feminine voice in literature is one of the key signs of the democratization that Spanish culture underwent during the last few decades of the 20th century. We will seek to gain a better understanding of this process by studying a selection of the best known narratives written by Spanish women during these last decades. In doing so, we will focus especially on such matters as the narratological strategies adopted by women writers, the sociopolitical context as it relates to female literary production in Spain, and the historical origins of Spanish feminism. We will also explore some of the key concepts of feminist theory.
