SP2: Lecture on Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz

"The title I have given this lecture is DIFFERENCE and INDIFFERENCE. Some of the initial ideas I'd like to gather around these two poles are:

DIFFERENCE in the sense of
- sexual difference (she forces us to change the way in which we read the cannon of male writers)
- linguistic difference (her work is not, as some have claimed, a mere copy of contemporary Spanish styles)
- socio-cultural difference (her work is not reducible to European literature and themes)

INDIFFERENCE in the sense of
- a feminine strategy of resistance to male appropriation
- denial of fixed sexual roles
- a telling silence in her work on questions of theology and religion.
