Women through their Writing

History of Women Through Their Writings

In this course through the reading of text written by women --diaries, autobiographies, and letters-- we will examine the process of construction of gender identity at various stages of history and the perception that women had of their own situation. We will also analyze the political, social, and legal discussions which made possible the emergence of feminism in Spain and Latin America. (1 unit)
