En torno a las políticas de generización de los cuerpos
: Análisis de la cuentística de Guadalupe Nettel, Cristina Peri Rossi y Clarice Lispector

Translated title of the thesis: On Politics of Genderization of Bodies: Analyzing Short Stories by Guadalupe Nettel, Cristina Peri Rossi and Clarice Lispector

Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


This research examines the manifestations of the rewriting of the body in stories written by women based on the historical temporalities of each particular case. The works to be studied will be: Petals and Other Inconvenient Stories (2008) by Guadalupe Nettel, a Mexican writer, The Children's Rebellion (1980) by the Uruguayan writer Cristina Peri Rossi and Laços de familia (1960), by the Brazilian prose writer Clarice Lispector. The books that make up this corpus strengthen the representation of uncategorized femininity and the establishment of a multiperspectivism within the imaginary of Latin American women from many variants of configuration. Likewise, it evidences the new discourse of alternative power in literature that, from the symbolic frameworks of the body, reproduces its own typologies that do not show analogies imported from other contexts. Finally, the analysis of the titles mentioned above, and the anthropological configuration of the revised culture will try to provide literary analysis with an epistemological approach to reality due to a distribution towards genders and their power relations. This is intended to broaden the humanistic conceptions about the role of culture as a construct of identities modeled after the hegemonic order that excludes bodies that do not orbit around its postulates of normalization.
