Gendering Migration in the Hispanic World
Spain is one of the entry points to “Fortress Europe” and a focus for migratory movements across the European continent and the Mediterranean. Recent migration to Spain has been largely female, a fact that raises questions for our notions of traditional family dynamics, legislation around migration, and gendered representations of the migrant experience in popular culture. Our speaker, H. Rosi Song, is associate professor of Spanish at Bryn Mawr College and the author of Lost in Transition: Constructing Memory in Contemporary Spain. She is also the co-editor of Towards a Cultural Archive of la Movida:
Back to the Future and Traces of Contamination: Unearthing Francoist Legacy in Contemporary Spanish Discourse. She has published extensively on contemporary Spanish culture and literature, on Iberian and Latin American detective fiction, and on migration.
