Course DescriptionWhat does it mean to "write as a woman"? Is there such a thing as "women's writing" and if so, what are its characteristics? This course explores the ways in which women have contributed to literary traditions both by working within and by challenging mainstream movements. In examining women's use of literary forms as aesthetic, personal and political sites, we will consider how issues of identity and historical context inflect and inform their writing strategies.
