Course focuses on 20th century transatlantic texts authored by women. Course scrutinizes the notion of women’s script, and studies representative “feminine” texts alongside diverse non-canonical feminist literary production. In order to discern the epistemic relevance of “feminist literature” (as opposed to “feminine”) course relies on framework of feminist political texts, both Hispanic and non-Hispanic. Specific topics, such as the second wave feminist movement in the US, and the intersection of race, class, gender and sexual orientation will occupy a central place in the course. Course includes film as part of the inquiry into feminist cultural-artistic production.
