New Approaches to Poetry by Women of Early Modern Spain

Posted By Elizabeth B. Davis, Monday, May 1, 2017

The publication of several anthologies of texts written by early modern Hispanic women in the 1980s and 90s set the stage for three decades of groundbreaking scholarly work on early modern women writers in Spain. The body of work that has resulted from this enterprise has radically changed the way we think about the Spanish “Golden Age”. Much of the scholarship on early modern Spanish women writers focuses on narrative, in spite of the fact that there exists a large corpus of women’s poetry from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This panel seeks to focus new scholarly attention on religious and secular poetry written by women in early modern Spain. We seek to learn how recent innovations in critical practice offer an opportunity to reconsider the production of early modern women poets in Spain.

 Please send a 200 word abstract, a list of key words, and a brief CV (no more than 300 words) in a single Word document to Elizabeth Davis ( by Thursday 25 May 2017. See guidelines for CVs on the RSA’s annual meeting page. While the RSA requests that participants make an effort to prepare papers in English, Spanish presentations will be considered (note that abstract and paper must be written in the same language).

This panel is sponsored by the Society for Renaissance and Baroque Hispanic Poetry.
