Course Description
Without reading some of the earlier works by women, it's a little like being in the attic with no sense of the house beneath you. Consequently, the course follows a historical sequence, with selections from as early as the 14th century to the present. The women writers selected also represent a wide variety of ethnic, cultural, and socio-economic backgrounds.

This website will provide links to your syllabus, announcements, and supplemental links of interest. We will also be using the Internet Classroom Assistant to have some interactive threaded discussions. During our first class, I'll explain how to access our ICA class (Women Writers 211) on Nicenet. This is an experimental approach to writing about literature, so I will be participating and learning with you.
