Women Writing India and Pakistan, 1947-present

We will read and critique the fiction and poetry of culturally specific regions while reflecting on the assumption that experiences and identities are fundamentally gendered.  We will explore issues associated with women writing in regional languages to writing in mainstream languages like Hindi, Urdu and English.  We will also examine how the publication and dissemination of women's texts are related to the women movements in India and Pakistan.
