Dr. Marianella Collette teaches Latin American Literature in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures at Ryerson University (Toronto, Canada). She has published two books of interviews with Argentinean women writers. In the first book she studies how their writings have enriched the knowledge of Latin American contemporary literature and cultures from a women’s point of view, while in the second book, she studies from a feminist perspective the influence of Argentine women writers in exile and their struggle for freedom and justice in Latin America. Dr Collette’s current research focuses on how women writers in South America are rewriting the traditional fairy tales from a feminist point of view in order to resist patriarchal gender stereotypes and to give rise to a new awareness of female voices in Latin American literature.
