EN 387 Women, Writing and Rhetoric


This course is an examination of feminist rhetorical theory and women’s voices. We will study the way women have been represented through language, as well as how cultural, social and historical circumstances have shaped the way women speak and write. We will also explore the complications inherent in the term ”woman” specifically and gender in general. Some of the authors we will read include Gloria Anzaldua, bell hooks, Nancy Mairs, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and Zora Neale Hurston.
