ENGL 54300: Shakespeare in Critical Context

“Shakespeare’s Woman Project” combines an introduction to Shakespeare, feminism, and queer theory with a more general introduction to the context of Elizabethan and Jacobean theatre and literary culture, and a hypothesis that, taken together, Shakespeare’s female characters chart a specific path of thought and development that is not limited to development of thought about women.

This eight-week course focuses on one play each week.
