CORE 003 SC - Caribbean Women's Literature
This course examines Caribbean women's literature from the Anglophone, Francophone and Spanish Caribbean. Our purpose will be to explore the historical and contemporary contexts that have produced innovative texts by women writers of the Caribbean who seek not only to record their cultural existence but also to challenge both the stereotypes and limitations placed upon them from within and without the Caribbean. We will consider the effects of enslavement, imperialism/colonialism, and neo-colonialism in addition to issues of multiple oppression such as race, color, class, gender, sexuality, and exile, upon the literary production of contemporary writers.
