Prof. Lee Skinner authors key resource in study of Latin American literature

Prof. Lee Skinner's new text, Gender and the Rhetoric of Modernity in Spanish America, 1850–1910, looks at how 19th-century Spanish American writers re-imagined gender roles, modernization, and national identity during Spanish America’s uneven transition toward modernity.

Nancy LaGreca, author of Rewriting Womanhood: Feminism, Subjectivity, and the Angel of the House in the Latin American Novel, 1887-1903 said it is “a key resource for the study of modernity in Latin American literature and its related fields: women and gender studies, sexuality studies, postcolonial studies, and beyond.”
