ENGL 3336 Latin American Women Writers

Both feminism and women's writing in Latin America has grown out of unique histories, social conditions, and geographical diversity constituting a thinking rooted in Marxism, socialism, and grass roots movements. This course will discuss a number of literary texts by Latin American women as well as some films and historical and theoretical essays. The course is designed to explore how Latin American women's literature and feminism (generally marginalized by Women's Studies courses in the US) challenges the tradition of women's literature and Feminisms in the West and makes us re-think the approaches to gender prioritized in the US. Area(s): World.
