This course will offer an overview of women's artistic production in Latin America and will consider how their “texts” intersect, reflect, disrupt or resist canonical literary movements in Hispanic tradition. The material to be covered spans from short stories, novel, poetry, painting of the 20th century to film and documentaries which can reinforce students understanding of the different characteristics of women production. Students will familiarize themselves with canonical authors such as Isabel Allende, Laura Esquivel, Rosario Ferré, Delmira Agustini and also with less well-known author such as Giovanna Pollarolo. Through the analysis and the close reading of these texts students will also sharpen their language skills. Prerequisite: Intermediate to Advanced levels.
Course Open to: Degree Students
