INGL-3230, Radical Women's Writing in the 20th and 21st centuries
The word radical according to Merriam Webster relates to “favoring extreme changes in existing views, habits, conditions, or institutions.” Given the contemporary rash of disinformation regarding gender and women’s issues, we will contemplate the use of the term to explore prominent women’s literature/feminist narratives in English through 20th and 21st century writers. Through the prismatic lens of various voices, we will explore the genres of poetry, personal narrative, short fiction and drama. These narratives will be paralleled against historical references, psychoanalytical approaches, critical texts and other frameworks in order to think critically, discuss and respond to the question of power in women’s voices, minds and bodies.
