Course Description

This course examines the portrayal of strong female figures in Spanish literature and film from the nineteenth century to the present. Beginning with the writings of outspoken nineteenth-century authors such as Concepcin Arenal and Emilia Pardo Bazn, we move towards literary and filmic depictions of female involvement in the Spanish Civil War, and feminist narrative of recent decades from authors such as Montserrat Roig and Almudena Grandes. This course focuses on the variety of ways in which literature and film have defied gender stereotypes.
