dc.description.abstract This course will focus on writings by women from a range of postcolonial societies, and examine the ways they intervene in and energize aesthetic and political discourses that critique gender arrangements. In particular, we will explore the ways writers use diverse narrative traditions such as folklore, fable, and memoir--as well as, more recently, digital writing styles--to give voice to their particular historical, cultural, and political perspectives. We will also trace the play of irony, parody, and mimicry as writers figure their ambivalent positions as women, especially around issues of modernity, sexuality, religion, nation, globalization, and development. en_US
