Un espacio femenino para la creación cultural en el Madrid del siglo XVIII: La Junta de Damas de Honor y Mérito (Book Section)
Title: Un espacio femenino para la creación cultural en el Madrid del siglo XVIII: La Junta de Damas de Honor y Mérito
Author: Elisa Martín-Valdepeñas Yagüe
Author: Catherine M. Jaffe
Editor: María D. Martos
Abstract: The women of the Junta de Damas de Honor y Mérito of the Real Sociedad Económica Matritense projected a collective identity as authors through the reports about their activities that they wrote, presented in public ceremonies, and published in Madrid. They claimed corporate identity through the paratexts of their published speeches accepting membership, and they signaled feminine networks in the paratexts of their published eulogies to their royal sponsors. They strategically claimed a voice in the public sphere through their publications and public ceremonies, a type of feminine self-fashioning as civic reformers.
