LIT.Q 212 - Women Writers and Rebels/ German Feminist Writing

(PEQ Literature) This PEQ course is an introduction to a discipline or Perspective - in this case the discipline of literary studies - through the exploration of a particular Enduring Question. Our EQ is this: How is writing a form of rebellion? We will explore this question by asking other related questions: How, why or on what basis do we read women’s writing differently? To what extent does the separation of women’s writing from men’s writing respond to sociological/historical necessity, but also essentialist ideas of the female voice? Related to this are questions surrounding the concept of rebellion, i.e. Is there something inherently rebellious about female authorship? Does the double-ness of subjugation, especially in socialist/suffragist writings by women of the early 20th century, change the character of authorship? Course Code: R. This PEQ course counts as a Global course.
