COLT 10.15 Women's Voices in East Asian Literature

This course introduces students to the major works by both canonical and lesser-known women writers in East Asia, with a focus on China, Japan, and Korea. Moving from the pre-modern to contemporary era, we will study the range of women’s voices and experiences as reflected through poetry, fiction, diaries and epistles. We will pay special attention to whether their works support or defy literary, social, and cultural norms of their respective era. In addition to the primary texts, we will also read critical essays on women, gender, and sexuality in East Asia. Topics will include family, love, money, politics, and women’s rights. All texts will be available in English translation.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
