EN 480 - 1 Literature by Women


Although the theories of feminism are now well rehearsed, in literary studies a good many women authors are simply not yet read by students because sourcing primary texts is often a difficult task.

This course endeavors to survey both major and minor female authors from the late Middle Ages through to the end of the twentieth century.
