EAST 207, FGSS 208|
This course will introduce students to some of the seminal works and key figures of Japanese women authors in the modern and contemporary eras. We will explore the big question often posed in feminism--Do women write differently?--by conducting close readings of the language and narrative device in the texts.
Intercultural Literacy, Interpretation
Students will learn about major works by Japanese women writers in the last century. They will be asked to think critically about gender in this context.
