MAY 16
Women Civic Intellectuals in Latin America From Readers to Writers to Policymaker

This presentation narrates the story of women during the nation-building period in the Caribbean and Latin America, focusing on Cuba and Argentina. Traditionally, the concept of “civic intellectuals,” writers who did not make a distinction between their literary and civic-political work, has been exclusively associated with men due to their work in the nation-building process during the 19th century. Sonia Labrador-Rodriguez contends that women who founded newspapers, supported them, and who wrote and published their work, were also part of the creation of a national discourse. Their work paved the road for contemporary activist women like the “Mothers of Plaza de Mayo” in Argentina and “Ladies (dressed) in White” in Cuba.

Sonia Labrador-Rodríguez is an associate professor in the Division of Humanities at New College of Florida. She teaches Spanish language and Caribbean and Latin-American literature. She directed the Cubano-American Community Project 2016-2017. Her area of research includes race and national discourses in the Spanish Caribbean and literature written by Cuban slaves.
