Course Description

This course will introduce students to the rich tradition of women’s writing in English. In addition to closely examining literature by women from the Middle Ages to the present, we will explore how literature fits into the broader context of women’s expressive culture, including the visual arts, theater and music. The development of English as a world language in relation to imperialism and colonialism will form our historical and linguistic background. Assignments are designed to help students develop research and writing skills.
