Women and Myth in Hispanic Literature (LyS)

The international research group LYS brings together researchers who chronicle, from a gender perspective, how ancient myths from different traditions are rewritten in Hispanic Literature. In the framework of mythocritics, intertextuality and gender studies, LYS identifies the transformation processes underpinning the retellings of myths in Hispanic Literature. By comparing gendered myth rewritings across different nations, socio-political contexts, and cultures, LYS identifies the new functions that these rewritings attain in modern times.
