This summer, students can examine the concept of “idyllic childhood” through a feminist lens, exploring how women writers use the coming-of-age narrative to illustrate the diverse experiences of growing up in the United States. In ENG 316 — Women Writers’ Forms, interested students will analyze a series of novels by women authors to see how their unique perspectives add to the reality of growing up “girl.”
