Works of well-established and more recent women writers in Spain and Latin America discussed in relation to feminist principles of criticism.
By reading, analyzing, presenting, and writing about the proposed literary and artistic works, at the
end of this course students should be able to:
❖ Critically engage with texts written by women authors and identify, or even challenge, cultural and
ideological assumptions and portrayals of women in Spain and Latin America dominated by their
male counterparts
❖ Examine the ways in which women as writers or literary characters assert and articulate their
individuality within the text and in their respective societies through their bodies
❖ Understand and develop a trajectory of the development of women’s writing in Spain and
Latin America from the 20th century to the contemporary moment
❖ Carefully study the relationship between gender and genre
❖ Assess and address current debates on feminism, gender, the environment, and human
rights, among others, to understand how writing by Spanish and Latin American women
connects with their own reality as college students at The George Washington University
This is not a new course. We are only changing the title and description so that it includes women writers from Spain as well as Latin America.
