WST 008 - (IS) Female Identity Through Art and Literature

Semester Hours: 3

Once a Year
This course will explore the theme of female identity as expressed in both literary and visual texts. What societal factors contribute to the shaping of one’s identity? What cultural stereotypes have been attached to women? How have these stereotypes been upheld–or rejected–in Western art and literature? Through our reading of critical essays, short fiction, drama, and poetry and our examination of visual texts (paintings, photographs, advertisements, films) we will explore these issues. We will also consider the correlation between the literary and visual arts–how they speak to and inform each other.
