Fall 2018, FREN 397-01: Séminaire avancé: Femmes Écrivaines Africaines: S'écrire et Écrire Le Monde (3). Prerequisites: Three courses at the 200 level. While providing an overview of the trajectory of women's writing from its beginnings in the 1960s, this seminar focuses more heavily on the literary endeavors of women from the late '70s to the 21st century. Through representative works from this extended period, we examine how women address such issues as patriarchy, tradition, modernity, the self in society, as well as the question of feminism itself.
