Queer Geographies

Listed in: English, as ENGL-370  |  Women's and Gender Studies, as WAGS-312

Faculty

Michele Barale (Section 01)

Description

This course will critically examine multiple works by three writers: Sarah Orne Jewett, Willa Cather, and Carson McCullers.  As American regional writers--Jewett, Maine; Cather, the West;  McCullers, the South--all three concern themselves with insiders and outsiders, with foreigners, neighbors, strangers, and natives. When these deeply national, and often highly racial or ethnic, distinctions begin to also make sense as sexual and gender categories, the textual layering of the narratives becomes perplexing. This course will require three short papers and one lengthy one.  

Requisite: One WAGS and/or English course. Limited to 20 students. Spring semester. Professor Barale.
