WMST 170 - Meeting Places


1 unit(s)
(Same as FFS 170 ) Beginning with the nineteenth century, this first-year writing seminar examines the role of gender in stories about people who meet in public urban places, such as bars, streets or cafés. Public urban places are associated with a specifically modern consciousness, characterized by the embracing of more fluid identities, fewer constraints, and a greater sense of the ephemeral. We use each text to practice writing about literature while exploring the critical concepts of gender, place and modernity in a French studies context. The course is taught in English: all works are read in translation. Kathleen Hart.

Open only to first-year students; satisfies the college requirement for a First-Year Writing Seminar.

Not offered in 2020/21.
