ENGLĀ 353. Gender and Literature: U.S. Diversity. (4).

This course will focus on the literary methods of gender analysis, historical analysis, and reader response as three lenses among many through which to deepen your understanding of literature; and will apply these tools to several texts, both historical and contemporary, in which the social categories of gender, sexuality, race and class are of principal concern. Through reading, discussing, and writing about these texts, you will gain a greater awareness of particular issues that have been, and remain, important, if often controversial, in our understanding of identity categories in our culture, and a greater appreciation of the role of literature in shaping them.
