New Women, New Myths

Fall 2022

Taught By: Rose Rejouis

Section: AX

CRN: 14110

Credits: 4

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, Nella 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.

After the first week of the semester, permission of the instructor will be required in order to register for this course.
