Special Topic: Girls: Character Development Across Genres

ENGL 312
Fall 2020 not offered
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate, Writing Certificate

In this special topics course we will study the craft of character building. We will focus on how novelists, short story writers, film makers, poets and essayists over the 20th and the beginning of 21st century have crafted the female child in literature to have a broad but challenging conversation about narration, voice, subjectivity, and agency. We will use the course materials and discussions as impetus to write characters that challenge easy tropes while also contributing to ongoing conversations about literature and writing.
