And just to clarify, the Anglo professor who announced that Mistral isn’t a woman is a professor of English who works at an English literature department at a fancy schmancy school. A very brilliant person who’s part of the movement to make Hispanic Studies part of English lit not only formally but ideologically. The panel was on Hispanic lit, which is why I went. But out of the 5 speakers, only two work at Spanish departments. Only one was actually Hispanic, and she was also the only one timidly to object to the idea that Mistral was a dude.
