LIT 316 Gender and Identity in Literary Traditions

3 hours 

This course will provide a close examination of how gender functions to shape both authorship and literary text. Students will investigate how writers use conventions of sex and gender, and how readers critically assess these literary representations. The instructor will choose the genre and periodization in any given semester. Emphasis will be divided between primary literary texts, relevant historical documents and selected theoretical commentary.
