Themes in Literature: Forgotten Women Writers

English 1160
Forgotten Women Writers
Section 02
Nicole Songstad

From love letters to science fiction, resurrected mummies to post-apocalyptic mayhem, in this course, we will consider the topic of overlooked and underrepresented women writers from around the world, ranging from the 600 BCE to 1993 CE. We will read texts such as The Parable of the Sower, The Mummy! or a Tale of the Twenty-Second Century, and the Therigatha poems. You will also have the opportunity to interact with various materials from the MU Special Collections and Rare Books Department. A major component of this course will be your discovery and interaction with a text from our Special Collections.
