SPAN 041. Narradoras españolas: del franquismo a la posmodernidad

This course explores the explosion of women writers in the post-war period in Spain and the lasting influence of their work on contemporary Spanish culture. Centering on the context of the conservative Franco dictatorship, this course will focus on the rise to prominence of a generation of women novelists in the period following the Spanish Civil War, looking in particular at their efforts to develop a form of expression commensurate with their experience. In order to understand these narradoras de posguerra, we will consider precursors and intelectual influences that may have shaped their writing, as well as examining the later generations of women writers who emerged first during Spain's transition to democracy, and then in the postmodern literary landscape of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries.
