ENH2750 - Contemporary Women's Fiction and Theory

6 points, SCA Band 1, 0.125 EFTSL

Undergraduate Faculty of Arts

Leader: Pauline Nestor


Clayton Second semester 2007 (Day)


The unit provides an introduction to feminist literary theory and surveys contemporary fiction by women. A focus for study will be offered by an examination of the uses of autobiography, re-vision and re-construction - the act of 're-membering the self', which is one of the fundamental preoccupations of contemporary women's writing. The unit will enable students to build, if they choose, on the historical perspectives offered by ENH2570 (Writing Women).
