SCW syllabus / YU only
This class focuses on five 19th- and 20th-century short stories by women writers. These stories have relevance to our current world because they are thematically concerned with confinement and claustrophobia, gender and race, mental health, scapegoating, good and evil, and groupthink. We will be studying: “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, “The Mark on the Wall” by Virginia Woolf, “Sweat” by Zora Neale Hurston, “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, and “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” by Joyce Carol Oates. Class time will divide into exploring these texts and learning college-level academic writing practices.
