Lou Charnon- Deutsch


Frank Melville, Jr. Memorial Library N3018, (631) 632-6031

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 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, Hold That Pose. At present she is working on the topic of conspiracy theories in nineteenth-century European fiction. She has served as President of Feministas Unidas (1992-1994). At Stony Brook, she is an affiliate of Women's Studies and of Comparative Literature.
