Course Homepage: No Homepage Submitted.

Designed as an introduction to feminist scholarship about women, this interdisciplinary course acquaints students with key concepts and theoretical frameworks for analyzing women's experiences, and helps students hone both their ability to analyze arguments and to "read" literary and visual representations. We will explore how women's lives differ and are interconnected over time and place, but will focus on the situations of women in the United States today. This exploration includes investigation of the effects of gender, race, class, sexual orientation, and nationality on women's lives. Material is drawn from both the humanities and social sciences, and topics may include, for example: violence against women; discrimination in the workplace; the feminization of poverty; and the family. The course does not merely provide analyses of women's oppression, however, but suggests strategies for ending that oppression. The course is structured around lectures, readings, films, and discussion sections. Students are expected to participate fully in discussion by sharing their knowledge and experience. The course grade is based upon written assignments, exams, and participation in discussion.

The "new woman," has served as an important focal point for both art historical and gender studies of metropolitan France and Germany of the 1920s. This female figure is cast in roles ranging from the mannish lesbian of fashion to the inconsequential shop girl/consumer. But discussion of the role of women artists in constructing images of the new woman has often been missing from these investigations of this female type. In both Paris and Berlin there were numbers of new women who were responding to their cultural context and producing images of their experiences of modernity.

This course will examine gender issues in the visual culture of Berlin and Paris in the 1920s. In the first half the course we will consider the many ways in which the new woman functioned as a symbol of modernity in these two cultural capitals, and the manners in which women negotiated and contributed to the images of contemporary femininity in popular culture, film, and art. The second half of the course will be devoted to investigations or the significant contributions to visual culture made by women artists who were, in various ways, new women. Thus this course will also offer an introduction to such avant-garde movements as Cubism, Surrealism, Dada, and the Bauhaus through the focus on the work of women artists of the 1920s.
