ENGL 12030 - Mothers & Daughters in Contemporary Lit

Course Credit: 1
Mothers and Daughters in Contemporary Literature Mother-daughter relationships are complicated. Reflecting on this intergenerational relationship in contemporary literature, we will consider how authors speak back to assumptions about the Mother, and the obligations of the Daughter, to reimagine gendered labor, identity, and sexuality. We will read Caribbean, African American, Chican@, Asian American, and Euro-American authors who approach this gendered dyad to comment on history, culture, and politics. NOTE: English 120XX can be taken only once for departmental credit; students may take a second English 120XX for College credit only. [AH]
