ENGL 4352 Women In/And Avant-Garde (Spring: 3 )
The literary and visual avant-gardes are often perceived as a predominantly white male domain, its female practioners reduced to companion or Muse, or socially marginalized by race, sexual orientation or madness. In this course we will examine the construction of the concept "woman" by male avant-garde artists and writers in (Dada, Surrealism, Futurism), but our main focus will be on a selection of avant-garde works by women in poetry, prose narrative, critical manifesto, and the visual arts.
