Rereading Modern Iranian Women Literature in the age of "Woman, Life, Freedom" (AMELANG 146)

The course examines Iranian female writings in the modern era and will familiarize students with some of the most significant modern and contemporary feminist writings in Persian literature. It will trace how almost everything surging around the movement of Zan, Zendegi, Azadi (Woman, Life, Freedom) can be found in Iranian Women’s poetry and prose of the modern era. In this course, a close reading of the texts will be in the Persian language; however, the best modern English translation will be provided. Prerequisite: One year of Persian language classes or the equivalent.
