HON 310 Women's Writing as Emancipation: Transatlantic Perspectives from the Scientific Revolution to Suffrage (3 credits)

This course explores how British and American women of the late seventeenth to early twentieth centuries used writing as a means of emancipation. Drawing on a wide variety of women’s texts—narrative fictions, poetry, political polemics, conduct books, letters, autobiographies, social theories, sermons, etc—we will examine both the historical circumstances in which women found themselves and the literary production that resulted. Satisfies Art/Literature GER/GEP for all majors; Honors Team-taught. GEP Writing intensive and Diversity.
