Eng 403/503

Here's the flyer for my Women's Lit class this Fall. I'm excited!

Fall 2010
Eng 403/503
Women’s Literature & Feminist Literary Theory
Dr. Stephanie Eddleman

We will explore the contributions of women authors to literature by reading and analyzing works by women from diverse eras and cultures. Further, we will trace the development and characteristics of feminist literary theory and explore feminist literary criticism. The novels for this class are

Austen's Sense and Sensibility
Bronte's Jane Eyre
Rhys' Wide Sargasso Sea
Pym's Excellent Women
Haushofer's The Wall
Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale
Shreve's The Weight of Water
Satrap's Persepolis

I'm so glad you're doing Handmaid's Tale! We need to order it though, because we don't have it in the library.

I wish, I wish, I wish I could take this class!
It sounds like it will be wonderful! I hope you all have a great time with it.

I think I'll read these books at the same time in an effort to convince myself I'm actually taking your class. Or maybe we could work out some sort of online class option where you post video feed on your blog every MWF. :)

Stephanie said...

I wish you could both be in the class!

Ian said...

O how I wish I could take the class too! Sadly, there will probably be few gentlemen in the class and they'll be missing out. Enjoy!

That's such a good idea, Heather. I think I'll steal that.

For the record, I vote YES for videos. We should make that happen. :)
