Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

This course will examine a rich literary, artistic and cinematic collection of women's stories and gendered narratives that were usually considered as belonging to the margins of History. Simone de Beavoir's Second Sex was one of the first to attempt to unveil the philosophical and ideological workings of the sexual ordering of the Occident, its prejudiced and obfuscations. While analyzing some of the West's traditional myths, tales, representations and narratives, this course will extend the scope of Beauvoir's inquiry into a non-Western and transnational perspective. The texts and material to be examined will include works by Germaine de Staël, George Sand, Flora Tristan, Marguerite Duras, Hélène Cixous, Assia Djebar, Maryse Condé among others.
