GWST 365 - Black Women Novelists

(3.00)
In this course, students will read and analyze the first-person narratives of African and diasporan women to understand how women have used language to define and empower themselves in conformity to or in opposition to the social conventions and political ideologies of their societies. Personal narratives such as letters, diaries, memoirs, essays, journals and autobiographies will be read as literary texts - which are imaginative, reflexive and symbolic - and as social documents - which underscore the ways in which race, class, gender and sexual orientation affect the lives of black women. Texts will be examined within the framework of feminist, particularly black feminist theory and practice. Recommended Course Preparation: GWST 100 /GWST 370 /AFST 370 .
