WR 351 - Art of the Essay: Women Writers

(3.00 cr.)

What are American women essayists thinking and writing at this moment in history? This question is investigated through contemporary essays by writers who are women: writers whose work has been nourished and shaped by feminist theory and whose work crosses gender lines, age, and ethnicity; writers whose interests range beyond the domestic or personal sphere. The assigned reading provides models by which students may shape their own ideas and essays. Discussions explore how contemporary American women writers are creating a tradition of their own. The course offers a supportive environment for developing technique and exchanging ideas.

Prerequisite: WR 100 , one WR 200-level course.
Sessions Typically Offered: Fall/Spring/Summer
Years Typically Offered: Annually
