HIS 377 - Women and Autobiography (3 cr.)


Explores the uses of women’s autobiography in the discipline of women’s history. Reading consists of autobiographies of women from a variety of 20th Century global contexts, e.g., South Africa, Zanzibar, Guatemala, China, India, and the American South, and of reviews and criticism of these autobiographies. While learning about some fascinating women, students critically explore autobiographies as a source of insight on issues such as empowerment, oppression, legal rights, motives, self portrayal and multiple visions of liberation.
