NEW SPRING 2016 ACS COURSE: American Literature: American Women’s Writing 1960-1990

This spring the American Cultural Studies program (ACS) will offer four new courses. Come to our free open session during the IIE Open House on March 15th to learn more.

In this course students will consult a variety of texts – political manifestos, poetry, short stories, novel excerpts, and plays – in order to examine how women writers both responded to and shaped American feminism in the late twentieth century. In addition reading works by from this period, students will learn about the unique cultural conditions that produced this literature. Students will develop and improve their English language communication skills through class discussions, short writing assignments, and supplementary audio-visual materials.
