ENG 222 - Women and Literature (4 Cr.)

(WGS 222 ) (LER DIV and LER TXT)
Topic: Working Class Women’s Literature. For too long the working class has been used as a coded term for white male blue-collar workers. Women, including women of color, form a large part of the working class. In literary works - fiction, poetry, and memoirs - these women represent themselves and their communities. Yet many readers are not even aware that the category “working-class women’s literature” exists. In ENG/WGS 222 we’ll begin by talking about just what we mean by working-class women’s literature. We will then look at several literary works in their historical and cultural context. Writers we’ll study include Sandra Cisneros, Rebecca Harding Davis, Dorothy Allison, and June Jordan. (Can count for WEC or WID: See English Major: General Requirements) Fall semester. Tokarczyk.
