ENGL 2207  Gender, Literature and Culture


Three credits of 1000 level ENGL or any 18 credits completed (excluding ENGL 1551 and ENGL 1552).


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




This course explores the various ways that culture reflects, constructs, reinforces, and/or challenges gender roles in given social and historical contexts. Theoretical approaches to gender provide the basis for critical analysis of a range of cultural texts by men and women. The focus is on constructions of ""masculinity"" and ""femininity"" in English cultures and media selected from the middle ages to the present. Specific content varies from year to year. This course may be credited towards Gender Equality and Social Justice.
