GSFS 0303 - Outlaw Women
*Outlaw Women* In this course we will read and discuss literary texts that feature women who defy social norms: daring survivors, scholars, “whores,” queers, artists, servants, revolutionaries. Texts include Powell’s /The Pagoda/, Duras’s /The Lover/, Lorde’s /Zami/, and Nafisi's /Reading Lolita in Tehran/. The course will take postcolonial and global approaches to desire and difference and to narratives of resistance, rescue and freedom. We will discuss rhetorical practices, such as écriture féminine, and readerships, such as women’s book groups, in national and global contexts. Students will develop their critical imaginations through discussion, contemplation, research, and analytical and creative writing.
