Unlikeable Women

Introductory/Intermediate | Throughout literature and film, women have been portrayed as either the witch or the angel, the whore or the virgin, whereas men have been given the freedom to be complex, disagreeable heroes and villains. In this course, we’ll examine how to portray female (and nonbinary) characters as nuanced, complicated, tough, and tender — with agency over their own stories. Reading will include works from Toni Morrison, Claire Vaye Watkins, Madeline ffitch, and Carmen Maria Machado.

Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online until further notice. If there's a possibility that your class might take place in person, you will be notified in advance. Even if classes can be held in person, there will always be a hybrid option to participate via Zoom.

Classes with "Zoom" in the title will be held via Zoom even after our doors open. Classes listed as "Online" will be held on Wet Ink, our platform for asynchronous learning.

All times are listed in Pacific Time.
