Women's Writing

This program is part of the Bachelor of Arts degree offered by The University of Newcastle Australia

Discover the formal features of women’s writing, including the ways women adopt, adapt, and challenge broader literary traditions

Here, you will read literature written by women from the 14th century CE to today. You will focus on writing produced in the English-speaking world but may include significant works in translation.

You will learn about the formal features of women’s writing, including the ways women adopt, adapt, and challenge broader literary traditions. You will explore the conditions under which women wrote and published as well as how their works were received by their first readers. It provides opportunities not only to explore key issues and debates in contemporary scholarship on women’s writing but to contribute to them through a collaborative class project. Together, we will think about what constitutes “women’s writing” and the effects (both positive and negative) of categorizing literary works in this way.
