PAPER #1 DUE. Take any book, short story, film, television episode or season of a television series and apply ideas from at least one reading from the assigned theoretical texts to provide a critique from a feminist perspective. You may use Sula and/or theoretical texts we haven't yet discussed in class. You may also discuss ways the literary text you've chosen to analyze contribute to a feminist goal (be precise about what that goal is) or how feminist theory helps you discuss sexism in the chosen text. Or you may discuss both in the same text because one text can be feminist in some ways and sexist in others! For more details, review Writing Assignments and Grades.

Film in class: Vagabond.
