Gender and Modernism

Spring 2019

Taught By: Anne Margaret Daniel

Section: A

CRN: 6974

Credits: 4

This course considers how Modernist expression and technique in Britain and America developed around issues of sexuality and gender. We will focus on the writing and performance of queer sexuality and the "open secret," hard-boiled masculinity and the context of WWI, new forms of women's sexual liberation on the heels of Victorian constraint, and blues expression and its racial constraints. Texts will include: The Importance of Being Earnest, The Turn of the Screw, The Good Soldier, Dubliners, Nadja, A Room of One's Own, The Weary Blues, Passing, The Sun Also Rises, and Nightwood. We will also read key texts in the theory and history of gender and sexuality. Modern music in performance, and art, via trips to local museums, will be a part of the course.
