Περιεχόμενο Μαθήματος
Are the sexes two and distinct? What is it that defines masculinity and femininity? Is sexual identity determined by one’s sexed body? Can we think of gender and sexuality as stable and universal categories? Is biological sex a given? How distinct are the categories of anatomical sex, gender identity, and gender performance? Through a close reading of a variety of literary and cultural texts this course aims to address the questions above and examine gender, sex, and sexuality as fluid signifiers whose meaning changes across time, place and culture. We will explore how writers have represented gender from the Renaissance to the postmodernist era, how they have responded to the scientific, legal, and psychoanalytic definitions of sexuality formulated in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, as well as the impact of feminism and queer theory upon the ways in which we think about gender, sexuality and writing. One of the course objectives is also to invite students to rethink contemporary manifestations of gender and sexuality as ambiguous and problematic categories, but also mutable and open to choice. Syllabus Week 1 → Introduction  Make a first attempt to define sex, gender, and sexuality  Discuss the fluidity of the above terms through examples from popular culture Week 2 → Shakespeare, ‘Sonnet 20’, Stage Beauty  Focus on Renaissance England and cases of cross-dressing, or gender bending in Shakespeare (Sonnet 20)  Talk about the political changes that the Restoration period brought and their effect on gender roles  Examine how the Restoration stage becomes a site where traditional gender roles are destabilized through Eyre’s Stage Beauty Week 3 → Judith Butler’s theory of Performativity  Examine Stage Beauty through the prism of Judith Butler’s theory of performativity  Talk about Laqueur’s theory of ‘anatomical isomorphism’ and examine how ideology shapes anatomy  Discuss gender in relation to the changing context of the 18th century and the rise of the novel, which coincides with the rise of subjectivity  Examine how private reading was associated with illicit passions  Attempt a close reading of excerpts from Pamela, and relate them to modern rape culture Week 4 → The Eighteenth-Century Novel  Attempt a close reading of excerpts from Fanny Hill Relate them to modern rape culture and pornography  Discuss the difference between art and pornography Week 5 → The Long Nineteenth Century  Examine how the Victorian times set new models for femininity and masculinity  Attempt a close reading of the last two chapters from Jane Eyre and relate them to the Byronic hero and ‘male gaze’ theory  Discuss modern masculinities as remnants of Victorian stereotypes Week 6 → The Turn of the Century  Discuss gender changes in the fin-de-siecle, the image of the New Woman and the Dandy  Examine how the Victorian models for femininity and masculinity are subverted in Wilde’s theatre and how the discourse of sexuality conflates with the discourse of food  Wilde, Oscar. The Importance of Being Earnest Week 7-8 → Psychoanalysis  Look at Freud’s theories of Oedipal masculinity and his dichotomization of femininity  Sigmund Freud, ‘The Dissolution of the Oedipus Complex’, ‘Female Sexuality’, ‘Femininity’  Discuss how Freud was refuted and re-appropriated by feminist criticism  Virginia Woolf, Orlando Week 9 → ‘Queer Theory’  Attempt a close reading of Mansfield’s ‘Bliss’, examining how desire and sexuality are expressed through a variety of discourses in the story  Discuss Queer Studies theory and see how it applies in different texts  Bad Men, ‘A basket of kisses’ Week 10 → Middlesex  Look at Aristophanes’ story of the third sex  Examine how incestuous love is presented in Eugenides’ book  Discuss how public and private history merge, and how the search for national identity blends with the search for gender identity  Examine Cal’s transition from girlhood to boyhood Week 11 → Cybersexualities and Postgender Identities • Discuss posthuman gender and cybersexualitites through two recent films: Spike Jonze’s Her and Alex Garland’s Ex Machina • Examine Haraway’s views on cyber bodies/sexualitties • Discuss if /how cyborgs escape prescribed notions of gender and recode sexuality and desire Week 12 → Intersectionality  Eve Kosofski Sedgwick, ‘The Beast in the Closet’  Henry James, The Beast in the Jungle Week 13 →Students’ Presentations
