Expanding Perspectives of Feminism in the Composition Classroom
Masterson, Kelly
Composition Studies, v44 n2 p116-133 Fall 2016
English 3060J: Women and Writing, is designed as a junior-level composition course for both majors and non-majors and is one of four courses from which students may choose to fulfill their junior composition requirement at a medium-sized liberal arts public university with approximately 16,700 undergraduates. The course catalog describes English 3060J as a course that "deals with works about, written, or read by women" and as one that is open to myriad approaches by different instructors. My course uses as a central theme the question "Is feminism dead?" to explore what feminism looks like for women writers across various social, cultural, geographic, and political landscapes and to interrupt U.S. and Eurocentric narratives of feminist epistemology.
