GERM-462 Women and the Follies Men Do
Professor Pfeiffer
The course is designed to broaden advanced undergraduate students' understanding of literary analysis and to balance approaches guided by literary history by focusing on thematic and theoretical issues of gendered narrative structures. Literary texts (fairy tales, novellas, short novels) by prominent authors (Brothers Grimm, E.T.A. Hoffmann, Gottfried Keller, Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, Theodor Fontane) will be interpreted with an eye to the gender roles ascribed to women and men and how they inform aesthetic evaluations.
