Women and gay male writers have posed significant challenges to dominant patriarchal and heteronormative national literary traditions in Latin America and the Caribbean, and at times have fully participated in the constitution of national discourses. In this seminar we will explore a number of paradigmatic cases of incorporation and exclusion, focusing on novels, poetry, and short stories from Argentina (Manuel Puig), Brazil (Clarice Lispector), Chile (José Donoso), Colombia (Fernando Vallejo), Cuba (Nancy Morejón, Reinaldo Arenas), and Puerto Rico (Julia de Burgos, Luis Palés Matos, Manuel Ramos Otero, Rosario Ferré, Mayra Santos-Febres, Sandra María Esteves, Luz María Umpierre, Tato Laviera). We will also see several cinematographic adaptations of the texts studied in class.
