NEWW conference: Intellectual Women: Dissatisfied Modernities
November 13, 2014 - November 14, 2014
The end of the 19th century and the first years of the 20th century are witnesses of a revolution in Europe: scientific and technological advances, new media, oriental spiritual influence, social advances, new aesthetics… A whole revolution in which women had an important role that has not been always recognized. In this conference we will try to explore the deep imprint that intellectual women left in the cultural history of Europe in those years, we will consider how dialogues got established between intellectual women from different countries and how the new and modern female voices proposed other possible modernities.
Continuing the tradition created within the NEWW network and the COST Action “Women Writers In History”, the Complutense Groups LEETHI (European Literatures from Texts to Hypermedia) and TEGEP keep on working to make visible the dialogues between European women and to analyse the answers that these dissatisfied women gave to the modernities.
The conference will be organised by Begoña Regueiro and Amelia Sanz, and held at Complutense University (Madrid) on November 2014, the 13th and 14th.
