This collection of essays provides an insight into the status of feminist positions among female Spanish scholars. The focus is placed on the social and political achievements that feminism has attained since the transition to democracy in Spain. It gives an outline of the radical changes in the image of women. Above all, however, this reader illustrates the extent of academic research on feminist issues which has developed and become increasingly differentiated over the past 30 years. The book is a dramatic example of the explosive development of feminism and the new status of women in Spain.

The "strange Girl" in Twentieth-century Spanish Novels Written by Women

"With an eye to the rather insular, particular development and definition of feminism in Spain, the author recognizes that the twentieth century has been a period of great change for peninsular women authors. Her study of the creative compromises wrought by severe oppression followed by relative liberation, all within the context of Spain's specific religious and regional influences, illustrates the unique positioning of these women writers as shown through their female characters. While this is reflection of the current scholarship in Women's Studies (examining the feminist resonance of the construction of female identity through texts written by women about women), it is one that is in its first stages of development in Spanish criticism and has been primarily author-specific. Ellen C. Mayock's research provides a more panoramic view, so to speak, facilitating an overview of progression between trends, as opposed to a singular progression of a single author within the context of era- a very positive move that allows for full comprehension."--BOOK JACKET.

Desde finales de los 80 venimos asistiendo a una eclosión de trabajos sobre historia de las mujeres que han posibilitado construir un relato nuevo sobre nuestro pasado. En esta «Historia de las mujeres en España y América Latina» más de un centenar de historiadores han aunado esfuerzos para hablarnos de las mujeres, de sus vidas cotidianas, de sus trabajos, de sus formas de religiosidad, de su escritura y su pensamiento, de su participación en la vida social y política, así como de las representaciones culturales que históricamente definen lo que denominamos femenino, en paralelo y, a menudo, en contraposición con lo masculino. Esta historia de las mujeres abarca desde la prehistoria a nuestros días, siguiendo las periodizaciones a las que estamos habituados los historiadores, pero hemos evitado caer en las férreas barreras de los períodos, dando mayor relevancia a los problemas que desbordan las cronologías clásicas y los enfoques tradicionales. En definitiva, en esta nueva historia nos preguntamos sobre el significado que determinados momentos o hechos históricos tuvieron en las vidas de las mujeres, cómo les afectaron y sobre todo cómo los vivieron.

Beginning with a brief examination of the importance of the concept of happiness to the European Enlightenment as well as to the growing 18th -century interest in women, especially in Spain, this study focuses on the literary expressions of happiness by Spanish women as exemplified in the writings of three authors: essayist Josefa Amar y Borbon, poet Maria Gertrudis Hore and playwright Maria Rosa Galvez. Author Elizabeth Lewis traces the theme of 'happiness' through the texts, explicating how important the concept is for understanding eighteenth-century culture. Lewis shows how happiness for women could be considered subversive, associated as it was (among other things) with the freedom to make lifestyle choices, with a sense of harmony that extended far beyond the domestic sphere, and with a feminine virtue that defied traditional notions of fidelity to God and husband, and instead encouraged responsibility to other women, especially to future generations.

Education is a crucially important social institution, closely correlated with wealth, occupational prestige, psychological well-being, and health outcomes. Moreover, for children of immigrants – who account for almost one in four school-aged children in the U.S. – it is the primary means through which they become incorporated into American society. This insightful new book explores the educational outcomes of post-1965 immigrants and their children. Tracing the historical context and key contemporary scholarship on immigration, the authors examine issues such as structural versus cultural theories of education stratification, the overlap of immigrant status with race and ethnicity, and the role of language in educational outcomes. Throughout, the authors pay attention to the great diversity among immigrants: some arrive with PhDs to work as research professors, while others arrive with a primary school education and no English skills to work as migrant laborers. As immigrants come from an ever-increasing array of races, ethnicities, and national origins, immigrant assimilation is more complex than ever before, and education is central to their adaptation to American society. Shedding light on often misunderstood topics, this book will be invaluable for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate-level courses in sociology of education, immigration, and race and ethnicity.
