SN3109: Short Fiction by Spanish Women Writers

SN3109: Short Fiction by Spanish Women Writers

Teaching Terms: 1 & 2

Convenor: Abigail Lee Six

Assessment: essay (30%); examination (70%).

Overview: This course introduces students to some lesser studied works of some significant writers and places them in socio-historical and literary context. It aims to familiarize students with the generic and formal peculiarities of short fiction and also to explore certain key areas of feminist theory, in particular with respect to notions of authorship, creativity, and language. The texts are covered individually and compared with one another as appropriate, with all students given the opportunity to introduce discussion with a short presentation. There will be a formal lecturing element, but most of the teaching and learning will be discussion-based and interactive.

Key Bibliography: Emilia Pardo Bazán, Cuentos de amor, Carmen Martín Gaite, Las ataduras, Esther Tusquets, Siete miradas en un mismo paisaje, Almudena Grandes, Estaciones de paso, ​Rosa Montero, Amantes y enemigos
