ENGL 233 - Women of Color in the Avant-Garde

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
Historically, the American avant-garde canon has privileged the work of white male authors, neglecting the vital contributions of women of color. This class will offer a different vantage point on the history of experimental literature and art in the U.S. Our course will begin with the modernist period and end in the present moment, traversing a century of transgressive literary and visual culture-making. We will explore texts across genre and medium, including prose, poetry, drama, performance art, and film, and consider theoretical and scholarly writing alongside creative work. American, Diversity, Post-1900.
