ENGL378Z - Special Topics in English; Women and Memory in Material and Digital Worlds
This course focuses on how the U.S. is remembering the 100-year anniversary of its 19th Amendment—women’s right to vote—ratified in 1920.
We will explore commemorative projects dedicated to the suffrage anniversary by considering such questions as which suffragists are remembered and why? How are commemorative projects engaging the exclusivity and diversity of the suffrage movement? And, in what ways are commemorative projects connecting the suffrage anniversary to the 2020 presidential election, present-day feminist and electoral politics, and voting rights? We will study a range of commemorative genres dedicated to the suffrage movement from YouTube memorializations to monument creations and from plays and musicals to art installations.
