New Course on German-Language Women’s Writing

I’m teaching a new course (English 450/German 453/WGS 405) in spring 2011, “Women’s Voices in Germany and Austria.” The course will meet Monday/Wednesday, 5:30 – 6:45 p.m. Below is a description:

This course will focus on the role of women in German and Austrian society from the Roman era to the present, primarily through the examination of literary texts and films by women. We will also look at questions of what constitutes “women’s writing” (Frauenliteratur). Taught in English (no German required for students enrolling in the English or WGS sections). Students enrolling for German credit must do the reading and writing in German. Also counts towards the Women’s & Gender Studies & German Studies minors. Contact Brenda Bethman ( for more information.
