Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In this class we will look at dominant, residual and emerging versions of femininities. We will start out our explorations with the 2017 best-selling manifesto Woman and Power by Mary Beard, a book in which the author traces the uneasy relationship between a woman’s voice and a woman’s power from antiquity to the present day. Our readings will span a variety of topics and will include surveys of Victorian conduct books and women’s journals to learn about the tenacity of dominant stereotypes. We will also look at female voices arguing from within the British Cultural Studies tradition to see where we stand now in (post-) postfeminist times. Part of the classwork will be hands-on with a focus on the intricacies and practicalities of the EFL classroom.
