ENGL 20213 Global Women's Literature

This course examines literature by women outside the United States and Europe, using a variety of recent theories about gender, nationalism, and historiography. Students will consider the fundamental place of gender in shaping a cultural narrative, and we will concentrate on the ways in which gender and sexuality are configured in the literature of women in various national, cultural, social, and political contexts. Themes considered may include sexuality, memory, race, decolonization, migration, nationalism, history, and diaspora.
