Course Description

In this course, we will examine the emergence of a tradition of women's writing in English from the Middle Ages to the present. We will follow the English language along the routes of trade and colonialism and observe how English becomes a global literature by the end of the twentieth century. Along the way, we will ask how the literary record documents women's changing status and ongoing challenges and achievements. Students can expect to finish this course with a broad knowledge of literary history, familiarity with the major genres of literature in English, skills in feminist literary and cultural analysis, and an introduction to writing by women in the cultures of the English-speaking world.
