    2018 MLA Convention

    Collaborative Session: GEMELA and Colonial Latin American Forum

    As is known, misogynist scholarly and ecclesiastical practices challenged women’s cultural

    production in seventeenth-century New Spain. Nevertheless, inconsistencies and insecurities

    weakened gendered discourses, and women found ways to make their voices heard. Within

    this context, many have already contributed to the excavation of artists and writers that

    masculine hegemonies marginalized. Building upon a strong foundation, today’s scholars

    continue to draw out previously overlooked instances of feminine knowledge production within

    the oeuvre of even the best-known figures. The collaborative session aims to overview such

    developments by exploring Sor Juana’s response to women’s intellectual marginalization. A

    secondary goal is to re-evaluate Sor Juana studies in light of recent and forthcoming scholarship

    that significantly advanced understanding of the poet and her works. In the spirit of what Anna

    More described as “innovation within the constraints of convention” the panel welcomes

    papers that consider how Sor Juana re-figured masculine hegemonies in order to secure a

    legacy for learned women (Selected Works xiv).

    Please send 250-word abstracts and 3-page CVs by March 10, 2017. (Mónica Díaz,
