Summary "Gendered Spaces in Argentine Women's Literature addresses the largely understudied issue of how gendered spatial relations impact the production of literary works. It addresses gender implications of spatial categories: the notions of home and away, placement and displacement, dwelling and travel, location and dislocation, and the role they came to play in the literary history and cultural criticism of Argentina from 1920 to the present. This study offers a cross-disciplinary model, blending theories from literary studies and cultural geography, and drawing on the methods of gender and women's studies, Latin American studies, and literary studies"-- Provided by publisher.
