課程概述

課程編號:122 M2640 二十世紀女性小說
This course will focus on Twentieth-Century women’s fiction written in English, with the premise that women’s fiction is related to the historical experiences of women and that the experiences may vary in accordance with race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, and location. We will read feminist theory, queer theory, and postcolonial theory in the first six weeks and study one fictional text for each of the following ten weeks. The themes we will explore include mother-daughter relationship, female friendship, gender relationship, trauma, diaspora, the interlocking of gender and race, etc. We will relate the vision of each fiction to the concerns of its time and study how the aesthetics of each fiction enhance the power of its vision.
