Programma

Black Women Writers

During the course of the semester, using works by black women writers  we will examine some of the ways in which American literature has dealt with racial issues and how women have described and discussed their specific condition. Among the course's concerns are: concepts of racial identity; the images and representations that blacks and whites offer of each other; overt and subtle forms of racism; the intersection of race, gender, class and sexuality, and ways in which the writers reflect and/or transcend the cultures from which they come. We will read a range of literary works - including texts by Phillis Wheatley, Harriet Jacobs,  Zora N. Hurston, Toni Morrison - as well as selected recent scholarship, and we will watch movies dealing with racial issues during different periods of American history.
