2018. October 4th. Cartographies of Emotion: Affective Spaces in Irish and Galician Contemporary Poetry by Women Authors.

31 Aug 2018

October 4th. O Rahilly Building. First Floor 1.24

This seminar will offer the opportunity to acquire basic knowledge concerning Irish and Galician contemporary poetry written by women. It will focus on the love discourse in the work of various prominent voices and its relationship with certain spaces to help us understand how they relate with each other and the changes produced in that relationship during the last decades.

Arancha Rodríguez Fernández holds a degree in Journalism from Complutense University of Madrid, an MA in Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies from University of València and an MA in Secondary Education from University of Vigo. She is currently working on her PhD in University of Santiago de Compostela under the supervision of Dr. Manuela Palacios González. Provisionally entitled The Extreme Region: Love Discourse in Women’s Contemporary Poetry in Galicia and Ireland, her research analyses contemporary women’s love poetry in both countries, paying special attention to the construction of identity and gender within the love discourse in these particular places.
