Over the decades the gender identity of women has fluctuated to include powerful women, emotionally strong women, lesbian women, and even neurologically atypical women. These identities reflect the expanding possibilities that society

Seeing the (Im)Material: Visual Detail, Abstraction, and Artifice in Medieval Texts

The literature produced by the communities of early Northern Europe, where the elements of craft and material culture informed the descriptive matter of both poetry and prose, has left a legacy which demands critical analysis of the ways in which the trappings of the real and the imaginary were represented.  What were the relationships between figurative language, mimetic representation, the production of craft, and perceptions shaped by the visual arts?  Did the allegorie

From the very first literary texts produced in Latin American soil by early European colonizers to the most recent literary manifestations of cosmopolitanism, one of the themes that has defined the literature of the continent has been the quest for its place within the cultural map of the world. This phenomenon has been fundamental for the development, formation, and transformation of Latin American literatures, particularly during the 20th and 21st centuries.

A sequel, already highly anticipated by many, is slated for release in late 2019.
