Gendered Spaces in Argentine Women's Literature

Publication Date May 2012

Publisher Palgrave Macmillan

Addressing the largely understudied issue of how gendered spatial relations impact the production of literary works, this book includes a discussion on gender implications of spatial categories like the notions of home and away, placement and displacement, dwelling and travel, location and dislocation, and the "quest for place" in women's writing from Argentina from 1910 to the present. This study offers a cross-disciplinary model, blending theories from the social sciences' approaches to the production of space, feminist criticism about spatialization processes as gender based, and Latin American theories on geopolitics and the establishment of national territories.
