Holstun, Socialism and Feminism In this course, we'll talk about the twentieth-century American dialogue between socialism and feminism, with emphasis on the novel. For example: Prof. A. Lyon: American Women Activist Writers This is a course in political activisim, rhetoric, and human rights. We will look at bad girls and figure out how their language helps to create both the identity of women and changes it the larger society. To do this, we are going to read selections from almost three centuries of writings by American bad girls. This course is the same as ENG 387 and GGS 335 and course repeat rules will apply. Students should consult with their major department regarding any restrictions on their degree requirements.
