Women and Authority in Early Modern Spain

Allyson M. Poska (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the ways in which Galicia may not have been unique in the early modern Spanish and Latin American context, and the implications of this analysis for our understanding of gender norms in early modern society. The work concludes with a reconsideration of the historical research on gender norms that relies less on elite conceptions of gender as portrayed in religious tracts and literature, and more on an analysis of the impact of the economy, demography, class, and culture of the people in question.

Keywords:   economy, demography, class, culture, Colonial Latin America
