I am directing a course for the Centre for Lifelong Learning at The University of Warwick entitled:

Feminism, Sexuality and Gender in Literature - Link

Course Introduction:

Feminism is more than a theory, it's a movement, empowering a way of life. This certificate will explore how women's writing has been engaged with, and continues to transform and challenge the politics of gender, sex, and sexuality. In doing so, it makes a case for feminism's legacy and contemporary relevance. We will have a cross-genre and cross-cultural approach, and the diverse range of literature will be discussed in relation to popular culture.

We will be reading: Angela Carter The Bloody Chamber, Margaret Atwood The Handmaid’s Tale, Alice Munro Lives of Girls and Women, Jeanette Winterson Oranges are not the only fruit, Judith Butler Bodies That Matter, Angela Carter The Magic Toyshop, Virginia Woolf A room of one’s own, Simone de Beauvoir The Second Sex, Charlotte Brontë Jane Eyre, Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar The Madwoman in the Attic, Jean Rhys Wide Sargasso Sea, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak “Can the Subaltern Speak?”, Chandra Talpade Mohanty “Feminism without borders”, Alice Walker The Colour Purple, Nawal El Saadawi Woman at Point Zero, Leila Aboulela The Translator.
