Course Description

ENG 280G
ST: Gender of Modernism

This course will focus on several key modernist works of fiction and poetry; we’ll look at James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, Jean Toomer, H.D., Zora Neale Hurston, and more. The general goal is to become better acquainted with some important modernist works and ideas and to place them within their historical and cultural contexts. We will be particularly concerned with the relationship between experimental form and constructions of gender. To that end, we will be reading some theory and criticism and studying how scholars have approached the “gender of modernism.”
