E 314V  l  6-Women, Gender, Literature, and Culture-WB

 

Instructor:  Train, E

Unique:  35595

Semester:  Spring 2021

Cross-lists:  WGS 301.27, 45995

 

Prerequisite:  One of the following: E 303C (or 603A), RHE 306, 306Q, or T C 303C (or 603A).

 

Description:  This course is structured around the question: What does gender have to do with literature?  We will explore other related questions like:  What do critics, authors, and scholars mean when they use the categories “woman writer,” “female writer,” or “feminist writer”? What are the possibilities and the limitations of these categories?  We will analyze how contemporary female-identified writers negotiate questions related to gender and, in particular, we will examine these how questions of gender are always deeply intertwined with questions of sexuality and of race.  Because these questions are especially evident in texts that challenge traditional literary forms and genres, we will mainly examine texts (including fiction, nonfiction, and poetry) that are speculative, hybrid, and genre-bending and will analyze how and why female-identified writers innovate literary forms.  Although our primary objects of study will be literary texts, this course also aims to explore the shared theoretical ground of literary studies and women and gender studies (WGS), which includes feminist theory, queer theory, and Black studies.  To this aim, we will read literary texts alongside selections of critical and theoretical texts in order to learn how to apply theory as a tool for the close-reading of literature.

 

The primary aim of this course is to help students develop and improve critical reading, writing, and thinking skills needed for success in upper-division courses in English and other writing-focused disciplines.  In particular, because this course is primarily interested in literary texts, close-reading skills and literary-critical methodologies will be emphasized.  Students will also gain practice using online research tools (e.g. OED, Jstor, Google Scholar) integral to writing and research in humanities disciplines.

 

Tentative Texts:  Gloria E. Anzaldúa’s Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza (1987); Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower (1993); Jos Charles’s feeld (2018); Audre Lorde’s Sister Outsider: Essays and Speeches (1984); Eileen Myles’s Inferno (a poet’s novel) (2010).

 

Requirements & Grading:  Three essays will comprise the majority of the student’s grade (75% of the total grade). Revision will be an integral part of writing in this course and each student will have the opportunity to revise each essay based on instructor feedback for a higher grade.  The remainder of each student’s grade (25% of the total grade) will be comprised of frequent but brief writing assignments, such as writing skills exercises, response papers, and Canvas discussion posts.

Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field that asks critical questions about the relationships between sex, gender, society, and our own experiences as political acts. In this course, students will come to understand key differences between sex, gender, and sexuality; define feminism both broadly and personally, particularly in relationship to race, class, and other intersectional aspects of identity; learn about queer and trans histories and experiences; explore women’s experiences in international contexts; and investigate the body and its representation as a way to uncover gender norms and expectations. We will also discuss and write about recent social controversies (such as bathroom legislation, bias incidents, the exclusion of groups from the Women’s March on Washington) as moments that reveal and critique the cultural codes of gender. An emphasis will be placed on self-identified women, LGBTQA+ individuals, and people of color.

HIS 381 - Gender and Decolonial Histories
Indrani Chatterjee, Professor
Judith Coffin, Associate Professor

Our goal in this course is to both historicize and pluralize regimes of gender: in other words, to understand that those regimes vary, often quite starkly, across and within cultures and change historically due to a variety of circumstances. Decolonizing gender in the present global context implies re-investigating plural epistemologies (ways of knowing), ontologies (ways of being, identifications and identities) and practices that gender histories of labor, love, sex, slavery, and family. We will investigate different forms of accommodation, confrontation, and appropriation within and across cultures and times stretching from pre- through post-colonial centuries.

This is a dual-track (reading and research) graduate seminar. Every student will follow the same track for the first 10 weeks. After that, each student will follow a path specific to either a reading track or a research track.

Those who choose the reading track will develop a historiographical final essay (see FAQs at the end of the document) made up of between 5 books or 10 articles, or a combination of these. At least 2 articles and 1 book in this combination should be from readings not included in this course. We recommend this track for early graduate students who want to prepare a preliminary review of literature on a theme that interests them.   

Those who choose the research track will use this opportunity to use some particularly significant primary archives or documents to chart part of an eventual chapter or research proposal.  


FIRST REQUIREMENT: Choose a track.

Reading Track Students: Complete all the required reading and attend all classes. For 6 class meetings (of your choice), write brief reviews of 2-5 pages for 5 marks each (6x5=30). On any one day in the syllabus, lead a class discussion (10). Participate actively in enabling your peers’ discussions (10). As a final project, reading-track students write a historiographic essay of 10-15 pages on a topic developed in conversation with the professor (50).  Finalize topic by Week 5 at the latest. Everyone gets Week 14 off to finish draft of the essay, which will be presented in class for feedback on last class day. Final drafts will be handed over on last day of class to the instructor.  
Research-track students: Attend at least ten classes, completing the assigned reading for those weeks. For 5 of those classes, write brief reviews of 2-5 pages for 5 marks each (5x5= 25). Choose one week when readings are most relevant to your area of interest and lead the class, including in your discussion of the readings an oral presentation in brief relating your own research interest to the reading (for 15 marks). Additional marks depend on your enabling your peers’ learning and discussion. (10). As a final project, write a research paper of 15-20 pages on a topic of relevance to your research proposal (50). Everybody gets Week 14 off to finish a draft of a final essay, which will be presented to peers in class, and then handed over to the instructor on the last day of class.

COURSE REQUIREMENTS COMMON TO BOTH TRACKS:
Though the reading list is currently incomplete, we look forward to teaching and discussing the following books:
1)     Khaled el-Rouayheb, Before Homosexuality in the Arab-Islamic World, 1500 – 1800, University of Chicago Press, 2009, pp. 1-12, 53-110.
2)    Francesca Bray, Technology, Gender and History in Imperial China: Great Transformations Reconsidered. 2013 pbk ISBN 9778-0-415-63959-0
3)    Cynthia Eller, Gentlemen and Amazons: Myth of Matriarchal Prehistory 1861-1900. 2011. ISBN-13: 978-0520266766/ ISBN-10: 9780520266766
4)    Devesh Soneji, Unfinished Gestures, UChicago, 2012. ISBN-10: 0226768104
5)    Glenda Gilmore, Gender and Jim Crow. Chapel Hill: UNC Press. 1996.  ISBN 0807845965
All other readings will be available on Canvas OR through the PCL. It remains the students’ responsibility to ensure they keep up to date with the syllabus and course requirements.


GRADING: This Course will use A, A-, B+, B. Graduate course work should not qualify for a C or lower. 20% of all graduate course work can be taken for Pass/Fail grade as well. If you choose this option for this course, you should find out the date by which you are required to register this option with your department’s graduate office. Making this decision does not exempt any student from the requirements of reading, writing and speaking as part of course-work.

Description

Islam and feminism are often considered to be contradictory in their essences and objectives. Nevertheless, we now find more than a century of writing by Muslim women (and men) who draw their inspiration from their religion, and who seek to reconcile Islam’s scriptures and traditions with principles of gender equality and justice.  This course explores the idea of Islamic feminism, and surveys its history and key writings.  Students will be introduced to some of the practices, doctrines, and texts of Islam that have been considered most problematic from a women/gender perspective, and will read and discuss the ideas of several critical figures from the 20th and 21st centuries. Throughout the course, students will be encouraged to reflect on the idea of, and varying definitions of, “Islamic feminism,” as well as to develop their own definitions of the term. All required readings will be in English. 

In addition to carrying the expected MES, RS and WGS crosslistings, this course also carries an American Studies (AMS) crosslisting, for two reasons: First, much critical work in Islamic feminism is being carried out by U.S.-based scholars, writers,  and activists, and study of that work receives significant attention in this course.  Second, this course seeks to interrogate the dichotomy not only between “Islam” and “feminism,” but also between “Islam” and “the West.” Studying the discourses of Muslim American feminists leads us to imagine different ways of being Muslim, feminist, and American.

Lorde and Rich

Two of the twentieth century’s most important American poets were also among our foremost feminist theorists. In this class, we will read widely in the literature of Audre Lorde and Adrienne Rich, seeking to understand the unique status of poetry in the civil rights, gay liberation, and women's movements of the late twentieth century, the contributions of Black, queer, and feminist poetics to literary history, and the continuing relevance of Lorde and Rich to contemporary intersectional feminist and queer studies.  This class is appropriate for those seeking greater familiarity with feminist anti-racist thinking, lesbian-feminist and queer studies, and poetry and poetics.

Fabric is at the heart of cultural production in African spaces. From birth, to initiations, to weddings, to funerals, fabric binds together communities, adorning families, and providing the basis for personal wealth. This course explores emerging research on the social history of textiles and clothing, with special reference to cases in Africa and comparative work in South Asia, the Middle East and Latin America. It seeks to integrate this work with ongoing debates in the field of science and technology studies on innovation, and technology transfer and appropriation. Through the lens of fabric, we will examine the meanings of diaspora, empire, modernity, postcolonialism and globalization for everyday people. Case material address the history behind fibers, dyes, weaving, and construction techniques, as well as issues of industrialization, intellectual property rights, sustainability, and global fashion. Course participants will also learn to “read” fabrics, clothing, and textile technologies for historical information through textile and clothing analysis exercises.

Skin & Bones: Race, Gender, and the Scientific Imagination in 19C and Early 20C America

This course examines the rich and recent critical turns to the medical humanities & science studies in the fields of mid to late 19C and early 20C/modernist American literature. Scientific discourse figured prominently in the cultural imagination of this period that covers the rise & institutionalization of professional medicine, sexology, medical racism, eugenics, natural history, museum culture, anthropology, and expedition/exploration “fever.” We will look at recent critical material such Sari Altschuler’s The Medical Imagination, Deirdre Cooper Owens's Medical Bondage, Britt Rusert’s Fugitive Science, Andrea Stone's Black Well Being, and Kyla Schuller’s The Biopolitics of Feeling alongside texts like Willa Cather’s The Professor’s House, Pauline Hopkins’s Of One Blood, Maria Ruiz de Burton’s Who Would Have Thought It?, Zitkala-Sa's American Indian Stories, George Schuyler's Black No More, and Frank Norris’s McTeague. We will also examine autobiographical, scientific, visual, sound, and exhibition materials of the period, particularly those having to do with anthropological & medical study.
