ENGL 345: Redeeming Eve: Renaissance Women’s Writing

(1 Unit)
Prerequisite: Sophomore standing or higher or permission of instructor.
An introduction to Renaissance women’s studies and to literature written by English women in the early modern period (1500-1700). The readings combine literature and non-fiction of the period with modern critical works on women in the Renaissance. Examines the ways in which authorship was defined in the period and the ways such definitions either excluded or restricted female authors. Particular attention is given to larger issues of Renaissance studies such as the status and role of women, the gendering of subjectivity, and the relationship between gender and sexuality. MacInnes.
