We will focus on writers from Argentina and Brazil whose work is reshaping both the national and the continental canon. Taking into account different kinds of narrative writing-from personal diaries to short stories and novels-we will explore topics such as the monstrous side of motherhood and childhood: issues of gender, class, and race; and the tension between rural and urban spaces. We will also analyze how women writers have been powerful innovators in narrative modes and genres such as regionalism, testimonial literature, and the Latin American fantastic. Some authors to be discussed are Carolina de Jesus, Clarice Lispector, Ana Paula Maia, Rachel de Queiroz, Aurora Venturini, Silvina Ocampo, Dolores Reyes, and Sara Gallardo. Class will be conducted in Spanish; Spanish and Portuguese texts will be available.
