Hispanic Studies 370. Contemporary Women Writers in Spain

This course introduces the students to the study of narrative written by contemporary Spanish women authors from the end of the Civil War (1939) to the present. We will approach the texts from a dual perspective. On the one hand, we will analyze the works in their socio-political and cultural context. On the other hand, we will study the works at the textual level, i.e., analyzing the text itself, its trends and its main elements: plot, themes, characters, techniques, narrative voices and the reader’s role in the work.
