Marina S. Brownlee

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

This course offers an investigation of the literary, medical and philosophical treatment of women and men in Medieval and Early Modern Spain. We will consider fundamental works by both male and female authors, thereby enabling us to compare the ways in which each gender was regarded in and of itself and by comparison with the other. Cultural and literary contexts from the 12th to the 17th centuries will reveal a wealth of perspectives. We will encounter such topics as the cult of women, misandry and misogyny, as well as debates centering on such crucial matters as childbirth, witchcraft, and the evil eye will be explored. Taught in Spanish
