SPAN 4310

Study of major Latin American women writers from 1900 to the present—poets, essayists, playwrights, and fiction writers. We will read works by authors of various generations and countries as well as essays on gender theory. Discussion will focus on the literary representation of issues related to gender and culture, with emphasis on how women from various backgrounds have articulated their female experience in societies that establish strong differences between the roles of men and women. Films and other audiovisual materials will be used to illustrate the social and cultural context.

ITAL 4350

Images of women as presented in major Italian literary works from the Medieval period to the 20th century. Areas in which gender issues will be examined include authorship, genre, feminist literary criticism, and representation theory. 

SOC 4350

Examines gender stratification - the relative level of equality of men and women in a given group - in comparative and cross-historical perspective.  Several theories are presented to explain the variations, from gender-egalitarian to highly patriarchal groups.

SOC 2380

This course takes an interdisciplinary approach to interrogating links between gender and violence. We will focus on representations of violence and theories of subjectivity in response to violence, querying how gender inflects the event and aftermath of violence.
