Perspectives on Early Modern Women in Iberia and the Americas: Studies in Law, Society, Art and Literature in Honor of Anne J. Cruz

This compilation of thirty-four articles written by renowned international specialists in Hispanic literature, history and culture gathers a variety of approaches to elucidate the lives, work and influence of women in early modern Iberia and the Americas. The volume honors Professor Anne J. Cruz, whose brilliant scholarship in historical gender and women’s studies and early modern Spanish literature has stimulated generations of Hispanists. The authors delve deeply into social and political history, law, literature and artistic representation to yield provocative and revisionist readings of real and fictional aristocrats, women religious, businesswomen, wives and mothers during the transition from the Middle Ages to the dawn of the modern age. This book will be of particular interest to students and scholars of the history and cultural productions by and about women in early modern Iberia and the New World.
