Women, Culture and Identity

This course explores cultural beliefs about women’s "nature" and role at different times and places, drawing on materials from literature, including fiction and autobiography, and from history and feminist analysis. Using a thematic rather than a chronological approach, the course will focus on the ways in which intersection of race, class and gender affects the lives and self-concepts of women, in the U.S. and in other societies in the world.
