WORLD LITERATURE BY WOMEN CMLT 275 0201/WMST 275 0201 MW 2-3:15 Susquehanna 2122 FALL 2010 Instructor: Amy Karp atzkarp@gmail.com Office Hours: MW, 3:20-4:20 pm , Tawes 2204L, Desk 61 COURSE OBJECTIVE: In this course we will engage with the works of women authors (and several filmmakers) from around the globe. We will work to ground the texts in the historical and geographic moments from which they arise as well as to understand the linkages between the texts that work as a whole to explore and interrogate the implications of a post-colonial and globalized world. Some questions we will engage: What does it mean to be a woman author? Does the linkage of sex and gender amongst the authors overcome the divergences of ethnicity and race? How do race, ethnicity, religion and sexuality shape each author’s understanding of what it means to be a woman? What themes emerge across the texts? What themes remain specific to the historical and geographical space from which the author writes? How are art and politics intertwined for these authors? ASSIGNMENTS AND GRADES: Students will be responsible for two five-page response papers, and a final examination as well as historical reports that will be due at the start of each new text (this will be explained more in class). Attendance is mandatory—more than four absences will result in lowered grades. Promptness is expected—late arrivals are disruptive and will result in lowered class participation
