Imagined Worlds and the Gendered City in Chilean Historical Fiction
Peer Reviewed Article
This study maps mechanisms by which three Chilean historical novels published between 2000 and 2010 propose the ideological inclusion of women in the imagined worlds of Santiago de Chile. These mechanisms, shaped by the theories of Arjun Appadurai and Michel Foucault, shed light on the function of gender within the fictional city. This interpretation highlights the relationship between space, gender, and the construction of historical narratives.
