Lou Charnon Deutsch

Deutsch

Lou Charnon Deutsch's earliest training was in the School of Chicago Criticism that strongly influenced her first book, a structuralist study of the artistic short story of 19th-century Spain. By the mid-eighties, however, she broadened her interests to include applied feminist theory and psychoanalytic theory. Her following two books examined issues of gender and representation both in well-known 19th-century male authored texts, and in the fiction of both canonical and non-canonical women writers. More recently, she has been working on systems of representation in popular Spanish culture, especially the illustrated Spanish periodicals that are the subject of her most recent book. At present, using an approach that combines cultural anthropology, materialist feminism, and psychoanalytic theory, she is examining the construction of the imaginary European Gypsy. She has served as President of Feministas Unidas (1992-1994) and is on the MLA Executive Committee of the Division on Eighteenth and Nineteenth-Century Spanish Literature (1997-2001). At Stony Brook, she is an affiliate of Cultural Analysis and Theory.

 

1978 Ph.D. in Spanish Literature, University of Chicago.

Appointed to Department of Hispanic Languages and Literature, Stony Brook University, in 1979.
