ENG-230 - Women in Literature 1

3 credits
This course will introduce students to writing by women from a variety of genres and historical periods. Our studies will focus on four key questions: What can we learn about the history of women by reading the literature they have created? What new perspectives on human experience do women reveal when they take up the pen (or the laptop)? What commonalities exist among women writers, and what differences arise from their diverse backgrounds, experiences, and artistic visions? What obstacles have faced women writers and how have they navigated these obstacles?

Prerequisite(s): ENG-101  (ENG-102  Recommended) ( minimum grade D ).

Mass Transfer Block: Credits earned in this course are counted towards the MassTransfer Block Humanities and Fine Arts requirements.

Course previously known as: ENGL-308
