    Call for Papers: MLA 2019

    The Forum on 16th- and 17th-Century Spanish and Iberian Poetry and Prose invites you to submit abstracts on the subject of sexual violence and coercion in the Hispanic Monarchy.

    Session title: Early Modern #metoo
    Description: Early modern Spanish prose and poetry reveal the operations of patriarchy very clearly; even putatively consensual relationships between men and women are often revealed to be contexts for the coercion and exploitation of women. Can these representations be utilized to speak to our moment? In what ways can the history of Iberian women’s authorship, patronage, influence, and resistance be activated to meet twenty-first-century needs? Are hashtag movements the new arbitrismo or the new exempla? We invite papers that analyze, historicize, and/or mobilize the early modern antecedents of #metoo, #timesup, and other recent solidarity-building efforts. Please submit 250-word abstracts to Ana Rodríguez Rodríguez (ana-m-rodriguez@uiowa.edu) by March 15.
