ITLT 090 - (LT) 20th- and 21st-Century Women Writers

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
An investigation of various modes of self-expression in 20th-century Italian prose fiction (autofictions, regional novel, bildungsroman). The texts, read in English, represent an overview of literature written by Italian women from the early 20th century to the present and include contributions from both peninsular and insular authors. In addition to the relevant literary and sociopolitical contexts of writing, the course explores themes such as the negotiation of the right to write, motherhood and authoring, representation of gender roles, female social transgression, rebellion, and self-awareness.
