Women's Bodies: Poetry, Politics and Power

In this course, students will explore the mind-body connection and its implications for conceptions of gender, identity, and power, both interpersonal and political through close analysis of visual art, texts, and films. Though the works we will analyze in this class were all produced in 20th-century Italy and center on representations of women and their bodies, all of these works appeal to a broad base of students. The course is appropriate for all types of learners and will employ methods of instruction that take into account students' varying interests and learning modalities. This course will help students develop skills that are useful not only for the study of the humanities but also the practice of healthcare professions.
