Educating Women

Educating Women in the Spanish Golden Age
In this course we will study a number of literary works that deal with the educational discourse developed for women in the Hispanic world of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Through narrative, drama, poetry, and art, we will examine the pedagogy for the positioning of women in religious, political, philosophical, and literary life. We will also concentrate on the subversive strategies used by women to respond to these discourses. Authors will include: Juan Luis Vives, Fray Luis de León, Huarte de San Juan, Teresa of Avila, María de Zayas, Calderón de la Barca, Lope de Vega, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.
