LIBS 647 - WORLD WOMEN'S LITERATURE
The aim of this course is to examine and understand the culture, theory and narrative of difference in World Feminism. The seminars will be organized around themes found in works by women writers from around the globe. We will focus on a vast range of texts which will be set in dialogue with the theoretical works of philosophers and literary critics such as De Laurentis, Gubar, Irigary and Kristeva, and to movies by controversial directors. This course will offer a framework for a comparative analysis of global feminist issues as they emerge in the writings of contemporary women writers of different nationalities. This analysis will impart global awareness and will show how nationality, as well as gender, race and class cut across women's definition of themselves, their personal and public lives and affect their literary creation.
