SPA380.5 Women and Society in Chile

Taught in Spanish at the Pontificia Universidad Catolica and may not be offered every semester. This course examines the woman in the history and historiography of Chile, highlighting her “presence” and “absence” in the political, social and cultural arenas from colonial times to the early twentieth century. The purpose is to inquire about the process of social construction of female identity, comparing voices and representations of women and their role in society, their inclusion in public opinion, access to education, their incipient professionalism through participation in social welfare activities and increasing contribution in the arts.
