For well over a century women of color have been writing themselves into U.S. history, continuously redefining their political, cultural, and social locations within the discourses of American identity. Their refusal to remain silent observers of history has resulted in a body of work — poems, essays, novels, and short stories — that helps us to understand the ways in which ethnic, racial, class, gender, and sexual differences shape our conceptions of American identity.

In this class we will explore the narrative practices of Latinas, African American, Native American, and Asian American women, paying special attention to the ways in which their writing has given voice to their differential locations within the discourses of American identity. We will explore the cultural, linguistic, and familial traditions that have informed their respective approaches to feminism, antiracism and oppositional politics.
