This session will focus on “locas mujeres” as a text that deconstructs the opposition reason/madness, by connecting its poetics with the contemporary feminist political imaginary and its aesthetics of the body.

This is one of seven lectures in the series "Rereading Gabriela Mistral 100 years after Desolación (1922-2022): A Transhemispheric Encounter," which explores the poetry of Nobel Laureate Chilean Gabriela Mistral (1889-1957) amid the political, social, and economic crises of the new millennium. All sessions are offered in Spanish and English with simultaneous interpretation. Click here for more information about the series.

Presented by the Kellogg Institute for International Studies with cosponsorship by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies, the Center for the Study of Languages and Cultures, Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts (ISLA), and the Gender Studies Program.
