Ten Essential Latin American Women Writers

Luciana De Mello, BA

New Year 2024

10 weekly sessions on Tuesdays 6.00 pm to 8.00 pm, starting 16 January

This course, taught by published author and journalist, will focus on Latin American Women Writers. It will introduce the students to an overview of the socio-historical context that has shaped the voice of these women. The diverse range of writers covered in this course offers exposure to feminine literary discourse, which is of great relevance to understanding the ‘matriheritage of founding discourses,’ revealing the rich textual examples of a wide range of women writers in Latin America, from those well-established to the lesser known and forgotten. The female writer has been largely absent from the literary canon with the exception of a few isolated examples. Writers will include: Clarice Lispector (Brazil), Gabriela Mistral (Chile), Mónica Ojeda (Ecuador), Gioconda Belli (Nicaragua), Mariana Enríquez (Argentina), Maria Fernanda Ampuero (Ecuador), Alejandra Pizarnik (Argentina), Samantha Schweblin (Argentina), Silvina Ocampo (Argentina), Lina Meruane (Chile)
