COLT 67.05 The Karma of Love: Japanese Women Authors and the Literary Canon

(Identical to WGST 49.4). This course will focus on the cultural construction of gender as it is manifested in various texts and traditions. Topics may include one or more aspects of gendered literary study: writing (male/female authorship), reading, literary form, masculine and feminine subjectivity, representation, or feminist literary and cultural criticism. Japanese literature is unique for the dominant position women writers occupy in its classical canon – a canon interrupted and co-opted by male-dominated cultures from the 13th century until late 19th century, when literary production by women reemerged as a significant modern cultural phenomenon. This course is a survey that draws on contemporary feminist criticism and gender theory to analyze the social, political, and economic forces that have shaped the history of female authorship in Japan. Dist: LIT; WCult: NW.
