ENGH 302 - Gender and American Literature

4 credits
This course investigates literary representations of gender and sexuality in the twentieth- and twenty-first centuries. Through encounters with novels, graphic fiction, poetry, and essays, as well as some visual art and films, students will consider provocative issues like the relationship between gender/sex and power, the links between violence and inequality, and the connections between art and politics. Attending to gender, sexuality, race, class, nationality, religion, and environment as categories of analysis, students will reflect on beauty and the body, immigration and citizenship, feminism and women’s movements, home and identity, and creativity and social change. Prerequisite: ENGH 150
