SUGGESTIONS FOR TOPICS TO WRITE YOUR JOURNAL ENTRY:
1. Select one or more of Sor Juana’s sonnets, or the Redondilla, provided in the Unit Presentation and propose a critical analysis on some of the following topics considering her perspective as woman and nun:
The relationship between art and life: what is the nature of art according to the sonnets and how it relates to the frailty and brevity of human life.
The significance of acquiring knowledge over material wealth or useless pursuits.
The nature of physical beauty
The nature of worldly love from a gender perspective in reference to patriarchal morality

2. Considering the fragments from Sor Juana’s Letter to Sor Filotea de La Cruz discuss her opinion in regard to the roles assigned to women at that time, mostly limited to marriage, motherhood and housekeeping or to the few privileged to join a convent. Which strategies uses Sor Juana to justify her right to acquire knowledge and dedicate herself to intellectual pursuits without contravening the patriarchal impositions on women. You should consider reading another passages from the Letter to Sor Filotea provided in the Unit Presentation.

3. You can expand your entry for the Discussion Forum on the film I, The Worst of All, and include specific scenes from the film to illustrate your analysis.
4. You can contrast the life and work of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz and Frida Kahlo during two different historical periods from a gender perspective. How Sor Juana and Frida responded to the constraints of the societies where they lived, ruled by a very conservative patriarchal ideology and how this response reflects on their work, you must provide specific examples.
