Madrid, November 2010

2010, 11-13 November:
Women telling nations
NEWW international conference
University Complutense (Madrid-Spain)
Org. Amelia Sanz, Begoña Reguiero, M.José Calvo

Traditionally and even nowadays, the Academy has conceived literatures in terms of nations, in the frame of printed books culture and canon. In the 21th century we have to think otherwise. Since the three challenges are parallel, it is time to ask how we can think cultures beyond the nation, literatures without the nation, women out of or in the nation, other kind of literary maps for women, as much as new supports for new representations.

The creation of a national identity has been a main issue from 1492 until the Revolutionary times and the establishment of the Nations as States. First, writers working for Monarchies and Empires, and later on, intellectuals creating the idea of Nation, have made strong that identity. The Academy has paid attention to men´s actions in this direction, but what are women doing while the national identities are appearing, from 16th to 19th centuries? In which way are women, as readers and writers, contributing or rejecting to build these imaginary communities? What forms of identification are being developed based on an imagined singularity? The time of the Nations, is it the women's time? And their territories are the women's ones? Due to the circulation of literary materials by reading and writing, what kind of “nations” women are building? What are women's nations in an ethymological sense? How were they telling boundaries in times of national construction in a political and intellectual sense?

In this meeting, we want to ask ourselves how women were telling and de-telling stories and Histories, territories and boundaries, literary nations.
