CMLT/WMST275 - WORLD LITERATURE by WOMEN SPRING 2012 Instructor : Chinenye I. Okparanta Course time & location : KEY 0125 M & W 3:30pm-4:45pm Office hours : TWS 2128, W 2:15pm-3:15pm & by appointment Email : [email protected] Course Description: This course aims to familiarize students with texts from a variety of countries and cultures. Through class discussions and writing assignments, we will investigate the factors that affect and define women in different parts of the world. We will interrogate the choices writers make in terms of literary representations of women, paying attention to how location intersects with language, religion, family, society, class, and culture to inform the question of identity. Course Policies: 1. Participation. Each class session will be discussion-based. You are required to read ALL assignments before class and come prepared to participate. You are expected to be able to respond to questions posed to you. 2. Online Participation. Part of the course requirement is that each student contributes to an online blog/discussion board that will supplement our in-class sessions. Questions to spark debate will be uploaded at the beginning of each week by two students who will also be responsible for preparing a short 10-minute presentation to start off the week’s class discussion. Students are ALL required to contribute to the blog/discussion board topics.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
