課程概述

Course Description:
This course aims to examine the relation between food and women in modern novels. We will deal with discourses on food and female bodies through reading works of Judith Butler, Julia Kristeva, Luce Irigaray, and Elizabeth Grosz. From angles of feminism, psychoanalysis, and affect theory, the course explores how female bodies are represented in Woolf and Atwood’s novels, and how food and eating inscribe socio-political meanings on female bodies. Critical issues to be examined concern traditional female role in relation to food, and how women could subvert it and empower themselves via food and eating. We will also read criticisms relevant to the selected novels to see how present scholarship treats themes of food, body image, and sexuality in Woolf and Atwood’s works.
