In her response to colonial patriarchy, Sor Juana creates a minimalist autobiography that declares: she is not to be found in the normal places assigned to a woman.
In theses lecture, Prof. Bergamann & Assoc. Prof. Del Valle contrast the nuns writing about herself in relation to knowledge with that of Descartes in the Discourse on the Method & examine the way Sor Juana creates a powerful self & at the same time, one that is entirely innocent of the accusations against her.
