ENGL 53.30 Women Writing Memoir

This course examines the autobiographical writing of a variety of women from across the globe. Paying attention to the socio-political contexts within which these women write, we will discuss the ways in which these authors negotiate different worlds while being marginalized along vectors such as race, class, and gender. For this reason, the class is inherently interdisciplinary. Most of the works we will examine have achieved significant critical acclaim, and we will also examine the artistic innovations in these narratives. Texts will include works such as Staceyann Chinn’s The Other Side of Paradise, Jackie Kay’s Red Dust Road, Julie Marie Wade’s Wishbone, Jesmyn Ward’s Men We Reaped, Jeanette Winters’ Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal?, Malala Yousafzai’s I am Malala, Janet Mock’s Redefining Realness and Dorothy Allison’s Bastard out of Carolina Dist: LIT.
