Subversion of Gender Roles in Spanish Literature

Prerequisite(s): Spanish 219. In this course, students will examine and analyze the way traditional gender roles are questioned and subverted in different works of Spanish literature, from the Baroque period to the present. Students will also have the opportunity to learn, through close reading of the stories, how to analyze and recognize different points of view, voices and narrative strategies, thus becoming more aware of their active role as readers. Among other authors included in this course, we will read works by María de Zayas, Emilia Pardo Bazán, Carmen de Burgos, Carmen Riera and Marina Mayoral.
