Women and Literature in France, 1945-2002: A Complete Revolution?|
Spring 2016 not offered
This course investigates the writings of women in France since the publication of Simone de Beauvoir's LE DEUXIEME SEXE in 1949. Through a study of novels and other texts by women writers such as Beauvoir, Mansour, Duras, Cardinal, Redonnet, we will explore the role of politics, psychoanalysis, and the question of memory in women's writing, as well as the themes of maternity, sexuality, and the relationship between the public and the private. In a more sociological perspective, we will also determine the influence of feminism on literature.
