HISP 419 - “Neither Saints Nor Sinners”: Women Writers of the Early Modern Hispanic World


Sixteenth- and seventeenth- century women writers were in constant dialogue with their male counterparts and dedicated much of their energy to debunking myths of female purity, passivity and ignorance. To this end, they created female protagonists of great strength and integrity. Exploring themes such as life in the convent, the mujer varonil and the mujer vestida de hombre , we will look at many peninsular as well as New World women authors who were busy challenging both social and aesthetic norms in their writing. This course satisfies the Area 1 requirement for the Hispanic & Latin American Studies major. Prerequisite(s): HISP 307 , or consent of the instructor. Offered occasionally. (4 Credits)
