Module assignments


In this course we will explore gender performativity in British literature. After a comprehensive introduction to the major approaches of gender studies we will analyze the (de)construction of gender/sexual identity in a wide range of literary texts. These comprise various literary epochs (Renaissance, Restoration, Romanticism, Postmodernism) and genres (poetry, drama and prose fiction). A reader with assorted texts will be made available at the beginning of term.

Students are required to obtain copies of the following works:

Caryl Churchill, "Top Girls"
Patrick McGrath, "The Grotesque"

The course will be held via regular zoom meetings
