GSFS 428 - Virginia Woolf & Zadie Smith

FC ARHU WADV
4 credits
This seminar puts into a sustained conversation two immensely innovative and hugely influential female authors: Virginia Woolf and Zadie Smith. Situating them in their literary, historical, and theoretical contexts, we will examine the ways in which both authors?one writing at the beginning of the 20 century, the other at the beginning of the 21 ?explore in their writings the relationship between literature, history, and politics. Texts might include Woolf’s Mrs Dalloway and The Waves; Smith’s NW and On Beauty, as well as both authors’ diaries and essays. Written work will lead toward an extensive final research project.
Prerequisites & Notes: Admission based on a completed application form (available at the Department office, Rice130)
