Jun 22, 2015

Jelena Sanchez, North Central College adjunct assistant professor of Spanish, presented her work at a conference and as an article published in a book.
Her presentation, titled "Illness and Pregnancy: Female Agency in Lope de Vega's 'El acero de Madrid,'" focused on her work on female pathology and power in 17th century Spain. She presented it at the Revisioning Early Modern Hispanisms conference, held in February at the University of Miami.
Her article, titled the same as her presentation, was published in the book "Perspectives on Early Modern Women in Iberia and the Americas: Studies in Law, Society, Art and Literature in Honor of Anne J. Cruz" by editor Adrienne L. Martín.
The book is a compilation of 34 articles written by renowned international specialists in Hispanic literature, history and culture and features a variety of approaches to elucidate the lives, work and influence of women in early modern Iberia and the Americas. The volume honors Professor Anne J. Cruz, whose scholarship in historical gender and women's studies and early modern Spanish literature has stimulated generations of Hispanists.
