Spring 2018

Taught By: Rejouis, Rose

Section: A

In this course, we will look at how women have tinkered with genre as they have rewritten gender scripts of their own. We will read the experimental works of both women of European descent and women of color. Writers may include Virginia Woolf, Angela Carter, Octavia Butler, Ella Larsen, Theresa Hak Kyung Cha. We may also revisit various rewritings of Antigone. We will examine old and new gender structures and family myths. The text focuses on 20th century texts, but students may include more contemporary texts and issues as well as other media in their class presentations.
