Welcome

As part of the Gendering Latin American Independence project, this blog will trace the legacy of women’s involvement in Latin American independence movements through an analysis of the testimonio genre.

The social and cultural consequences of historic female participation in the public sphere will be examined through the prism of more recent autobiographical testimonial literature authored by politically active Latin American women.
