ENG 416 Rebellious Women Writers: Reformers, Slaves, and Suffragists (3 Credits)
This Honors course, a variation of the team-taught "Women's Writing as Emancipation" course, explores how British and American women of the late seventeenth to early twentieth centuries used writing to rebel against the status quo. In this course, we will examine a wide variety of women's texts - narrative fictions, poetry, political polemics, conduct books, letters, autobiographies, social theories, sermons, and protest leaflets - and we will discuss the effects of these different responses to women's plight. We will look closely at the influences that British and American writers exerted upon one another. Satisfies Art/Literature GER/GEP for all majors; GEP Writing Intensive and Diversity.
