Primary Instructor:

When one thinks about Eastern European literature, often authors like Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Kundera, or Milosz come to mind. Despite the fact that male authors dominate the national canons of Eastern European countries, the women of Eastern Europe have never been silent about their political, social, and cultural experiences. Race, ethnicity, class, religion, and a host of additional factors played (and continue to play) a role in their failures and successes as writers and filmmakers. Students will explore the specificities of both the politics of publishing and the individual experiences of Eastern European women, utilizing writings and films from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. This course attempts to dismantle Western stereotypes about Eastern Europe and widen feminist critical paradigms in order to create a more inclusive vision of what feminism looks like in this part of the world.
