L77 WGSS 5241Seminar: Feminist Modernist Studies3.0 Units
Description:Nearly a decade ago, Jane Garrity reflected that the "gynocritical" work of feminist recovery seemed "no longer hip" within modernist studies, especially in comparison to the recent temporal and geographical expansions of the field. And in her introduction to a recent special issue of MFS devoted to "Women's Fiction, New Modernist Studies, and Feminism," Anne E. Fernald describes the field as one in which "work on women writers abounds but definitions of modernist studies consistently neglect or underserve women." The concerns of this course are twofold: first, we will read an alternate canon of modernist women writers, thereby taking up Fernald's challenge to "read without first measuring every writer against the landmarks we already know." Second, we will investigate the place of feminist and queer recovery work within contemporary modernist studies. Can we move beyond the politics of recovery without denigrating its value? The seminar will coincide with the launch of Feminist Modernist Studies, an exciting new journal in the field, and seminar participants will produce work toward a future submission. Prior coursework in either modernist studies or feminist theory always encouraged but never required; MFA candidates, participants working primarily in literatures other than English, and those studying women writers in other periods are explicitly welcome to join us. Interested auditors should contact Prof. Micir.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
