  • This volume brings together cutting-edge research on modern Spanish women as writers, activists, and embodiments of cultural change, and simultaneously honors Maryellen Bieder’s invaluable scholarly contribution to the field. The essays are innovative in their consideration of lesser-known women writers, focus on women as political activists, and use of post-colonialism, queer theory, and spatial theory to examine the period from the Enlightenment until World War II. The contributors study women as agents and representations of social change in a variety of genres, including short stories, novels, plays, personal letters, and journalistic pieces. Canonical authors such as Emilia Pardo Bazán, Leopoldo Alas “Clarín,” and Carmen de Burgos are considered alongside lesser known writers and activists such as María Rosa Gálvez, Sofía Tartilán, and Caterina Albert i Paradís. The critical analyses are situated within their specific socio-historical context, and shed new light on nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Spanish literature, history, and culture.
  • Jennifer Smith is Associate Professor of Spanish and Interim Chair of the Department of Languages, Cultures, and International Trade at Southern Illinois University Carbondale. Her main area of research is late nineteenth- and early twentieth century Spanish literature and culture. Her current book project focuses on the role of science and medicine in the construction of female gender identities, and how, in certain contexts women writers made use of Spain’s rich mystical tradition to contest the scientific determinism of the day. In addition to a co-edited volume titled Intersections of Race, Class, Gender, and Nation in Fin-de-Siècle Spanish Literature and Culture (Routledge 2017) and a bilingual edition of Emilia Pardo Bazán's Insolación (Cervantes & Co., 2011), Dr. Smith has articles published in journals such as Revista Canadiense de Estudios Hispánicos, Revista de Estudios Hispánicos, and Anales de la Literatura Española Contemporánea.
