WGS 3760 Life/Writing Indigenous Women


This course studies the richness of the culture and literatures of women from indigenous communities, and the systemic oppression that they have been/are subject to due to race, caste, gender, and class. The communities include Native American, Australian Aborigine, and Dalit women from India. The traditional and historical status of these women in relation to their social, economic, and political status today is studied in individual stores, memoirs, songs, poetry, and fiction. Significant texts in translated literary forms and works are used as primary resources.
