RLSP 221 Fall 2014 Women in Latin America

Latin American feminism is conventionally read like any other form of feminism, as an absence attempting to become present. Pivoting around a selection of short stories by the likes of the Ocampos, Bombal, Garro, Valenzuela, Poniatowska, Peri Rossi, Allende, and Schweblin, along with criticism and political contextualization, we will discuss such conventional readings, comparing different responses to superstructural power within Latin America while also asking whether more general, pan-American points can or should be made. There may be some background reading in English. Conducted in Spanish.
