This course examines literature written by women in English spanning from the nineteenth century to present day. We will explore women's literature from various genres, including short stories, fiction, nonfiction, graphic novels, poetry, and drama. We will examine the similarities and differences across women's writing, as they engage with issues of social justice, sexuality, gender, race, and class. You will employ close reading and literary analysis skills to survey women's literature from within a variety of historical, social, and cultural contexts. Together, we will consider the following questions: how do we define women's literature?, what are women's contributions to dominant and countercultural literary traditions?, what is the history and evolution of women's own literary tradition?, and what does the future hold for women's literature?
