Mission Statement

GEMELA strives to unite scholars across traditional disciplinary boundaries through its focus on women's cultural production in medieval and early modern Spain and colonial Latin America through 1800. Our purpose is to distribute information and knowledge about women and their role as cultural producers. Our conferences and publications encourage teaching and research based on all approaches related to our principal field of inquiry.
