BK 201 Versions in Black: Genres of Black Women's Writing (Spring: 3)

Cross Listed with EN201
Satisfies Cultural Diversity Core Requirement
Offered Periodically
The phrase "Black Women's Writing" implies that such writing is a fixed, if not homogenous, thing that can be neatly defined and represented. Our course constitutes itself against this idea; rather than experiencing writing by black women as easily definable, we seek to represent Black Women's Writing as diverse, complicated, and contradictory. Reading these works will encourage us to re-examine notions of blackness, gender, sexuality, community, and history. We will examine the varied genres black women writers use to articulate their experiences.
