Bio

Natalie Love is a Ph.D. candidate of Spanish specializing in fin de siècle literature from Latin America and Spain.  She is particularly interested in the way in which authors implemented medical discourses in their literary works to express anxieties surrounding shifting gender roles in society. In her dissertation, she analyzes how male writers, such as Horacio Quiroga, connect the theme of illness with representations of autoerotic pleasure to communicate a crisis of masculinity, while exposing male preoccupations with women’s newly developed rights to equality, independence and sexual gratification at the turn of the century.
