Learning outcomes

The course will explore representative aspects of latinamerican women writer’s life and work; women writers that were determinant for the cultural story fo the american continent. The study of heir works, rappresentative of different periods, genres and regional spaces, intends establish rich and problematic articolations of the general panorama of the cultural area. We will discusse some critic notions as ‘foundation’, ‘canon’, ‘plurality’ and ‘decentralisation’ in order to establish some connection with the sociocultural context of the moment and to analize the different discorsive strategies evident in the women writers selected.
