Primary Instructor:


In the wake of contemporary feminist movements across the hemisphere, this course provides a historical perspective to feminist politics and thinking in Latin America. Our discussions will follow two axes: first, we will explore the junctures at which feminism intersects with other struggles for change and constitutes a rich site for the critique of colonialism and social relations under capitalism; the second, by honing onto feminism’s creative potency to imagine and experiment with alternative arrangements for life. To do so we will analyze an array of texts both literary and philosophical as well as other forms of cultural expression like photography, painting, and film.

This course counts toward the literature requirement for the Spanish minor.

Class Format:

Taught in Spanish.

For Fall 2021: During certain periods of the term, we will engage in discussions about the course content in an in-person format; during other periods of the term, we will engage in activities where students collaborate in activities via Zoom.
