This course is inspired by the fact that a great majority of the well known Latin American writers are male. This class, instead, is interested in learning about what female writers have said in the past and what they are saying now. We will read the works of writers from twentieth to twenty-first centuries, from diverse countries such as Dominican Republic, Cuba, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Chile, and Argentina. We will deal with topics that include coming of age, class conflict, and violence against women during dictatorships and the War on Drugs. We will move across different genres such as novels, short stories, poetry, and blogs.

This course counts as literature credit for the Spanish minor.
