Italian Women Writers II
This course will address the development of female discourse in the poetry, plays, short stories, and short novels of 20th Century Italian women. The class emphasizes the works that best represent the myriad of women’s voices in the past century. Not all authors subscribe to a feminist ideology, but their works share an interest in issues that concern women, including motherhood, gender roles, relationships between men and women, sexuality, and female friendship.
Note: Honors students will conduct in-depth research project focusing on particular figure or theme touched on in the course.
