Students examine the interrelation of literature, culture, and sexuality. In their analyses, students will consider literary texts not as passive reflections of external social reality, but as active contributors to ongoing cultural debates and to the shaping of sexual ideology. Specific content varies from year to year. This course may be credited toward Gender Equality and Social Justice. Students in a Gender Equality and Social Justice program who have not completed the prerequisite may request permission from the Department Chair of English Studies to take ENGL 3217.
