The essays collected in this volume from leading and recent scholars in Peninsular and colonial studies offer entirely new research on women’s acquisition and practice of literacy, on conventual literacy and on the cultural representations of women’s literacy. The collection reveals the surprisingly broad range of pedagogical methods and learning experiences undergone by early modern women in Spain and the New World.
