“When Women’s Lives Began to Matter: Eighteenth-Century Italian Women’s Autobiography and the Case of Angela Veronese”

When Women’s Lives Began to Matter: Eighteenth-Century Italian Women’s Autobiography and the Case of Angela Veronese

  

WGS 3680 / ITTR 3680

This course explores how Italian women writers have represented food in their short stories, novels and autobiographies in dialogue with the culture and society from late nineteenth century to the present. Looking how cooking and serving meals to others, while denying themselves the pleasure of eating, are depicted in Italian women’s writing helps us understand the role food and food-related-activities have played, and still play, in women’s lives.
