This series took place onFrom to

Anna Caballé, a writer and Lecturer in Spanish Literature at the Universitat de Barcelona, addresses the figures of various Spanish Romantic women writers (Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda, Carolina Coronado and Fernán Caballero–the pseudonym of Cecilia Böhl de Faber–among others), in regard to their difficult task as pioneers in the professional incorporation of women into literature.

In a second session, the writer Concepción Arenal (1820-1893) will be analysed. In the guest speaker’s opinion, Arenal was the most important and original Spanish philosopher of the nineteenth century, as well as the most talented, together with Emilia Pardo Bazán.
