La isla bajo el mar de Isabel Allende.: Mecanismos de dominación y estrategias de resistencia desde una perspectiva feminista y poscolonial.
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
In this thesis I have searched for and analyzed possible mechanisms of domination and strategies for resistance in the novel La isla bajo el mar by Isabel Allende. This was done with a post-colonial and feminist perspective, focusing on the structural divisions that can be found within these frameworks and using binary oppositions to identify different unequal power relations. These oppositions showed me the unjust structures that are being present in the novel, and made it easier to identify the mechanisms used to oppress certain groups of people. After identifying the mechanisms of oppression, I could also point out the strategies of resistance used by Teté, the main character, and oppressed groups together to resist this domination and the power of the norms in society.
