ENGL 534 - Women and Literature

Credit Hours: 3
Lecture Hours: 3
Lab Hours: 0

This course surveys many of the most important literary texts written by women. The course explores and analyzes the cultural assumptions embedded in literature about women written by men and women. The course examines the social, political, ideological, and economic matrices of both the production and readership of literature. It gives special attention to women’s revaluations and revisions of those matrices. The course discusses the varieties of contemporary feminist theory and criticism. The course also applies feminist contributions to the more important contemporary developments in literary theory and criticism: reader-response theory, structuralism and deconstruction, the new historicism, and the debate over canon formation.
