En el bicentenario de Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda: legados de creación femenina

El Bicentenario de Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, feminista avant la lettre, escritora nómada (no en balde firmaba como La Peregrina) y autora genial que cultivó con éxito la poesía, el teatro, la narrativa y el ensayo, es un magnífico pretexto para reunir en La Habana a quienes estudian la literatura de las mujeres en España y América, espacios geográficos enlazados no sólo por la lengua y la cultura, sino por numerosas rutas de ida y vuelta, como la propia vida de Avellaneda.
Su legado va más allá del compromiso con la escritura y a él se dedicará al menos una de las sesiones del congreso, que explorará además temas varios sobre la escritura femenina en lengua española, en cualquier contexto histórico y/o geográfico, así como otros temas de interés para la teoría y la práctica crítica y feminista.
Las propuestas podrán abordar los siguientes temas:
•La obra de Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda.
•Estrategias, opciones estilísticas y diálogos con la tradición y la historia.
•Géneros preteridos, géneros preferidos: constantes y disonancias en la escritura femenina.
•La mujer y el imperio, acercamientos literarios
•Palabras de ida y vuelta: migraciones, retornos, visiones trasatlánticas
•La teoría feminista en el ámbito hispánico
•Mujeres y creación artística
•Mujeres y periodismo
•El feminismo y los estudios culturales
•La cultura material femenina y sus representaciones
•Relaciones entre feminismo e hispanismo
•Construcciones lingüísticas de la identidad feminista hispana
•Las nuevas tecnologías y la producción literaria/cultural
•Postulación de sexualidades e identidades como retos a la norma cultural
•Heterodoxia, herejía e hispanismo
•El cuerpo en las palabras
•Feminismos transatlánticos
•Los estudios de género: legado y futuro
•Re-imaginar masculinidades y feminidades
•El arte feminista: revaluaciones, evaluaciones, devaluaciones
•Estudios interdisciplinarios de mujer y género
•Feminismos globales y locales

Los títulos y resúmenes deberán enviarse a Zaida Capote Cruz (forza@cubarte.cult.cu), con copia a Barbara Riess (briess@allegheny.edu) antes del 30 de marzo de 2014, acompañados de un breve curriculum vitae de su autor/a.
