Primary Instructor:

What does it mean to be a feminist? How has feminism transformed itself in order to respond to changing historical and political conjectures? How have feminist positions been expressed differently within and beyond the boundaries of written and visual culture? How can we understand the tensions that arise between different discourses that are at odds with each other and that, nevertheless, claim to be equal expressions of feminism?

This course is designed to explore these questions through the reading and consideration of feminist writings across time within the Hispanic world. By closely analyzing different types of texts and other forms of cultural expression such as photography, painting, and film, we will explore feminist thinking in Spain, Latin America, the Caribbean, and the US. This course will help students reflect upon how feminism has created fluid networks that have oftentimes challenged traditional geographical boundaries as much as it has sometimes complicated notions of representation, gender, race, and class.

This course counts as literature credit toward the Spanish minor.
