Taft Lecture, Spanish: Dr Roberta Johnson

Roberta Johnson
Professor Emerita, University of Kansas
& Visiting Professor, UCLA

Gives the talk: Spanish Feminist Thought and the Contemporary Spanish novel.

The feminist movement in Spain has had a long history of allying itself with prose fiction. The lecture provides historical precedents for this phenomenon in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries before concentrating on the Franco era (1939-1975) when other forms of feminism were forbidden. More recent developments in Spanish feminist thought will be explored in novels written from 1975 to the present.

Date of the lecture: May 18, 2011
