Course Description

This course will introduce students to the methods, issues, and debates they are likely to encounter as English majors. It will do this through the lens of women's writing, especially writing from the nineteenth and twentieth century Britain and America. Along the way, we'll discuss what it means to be a "woman writer" and how the writers we examine both define themselves and contribute to the field. A major component of our reading will be an investigation of the ways in which this writing upholds or challenges the prevailing values of its historical moment.
