Pedagogical format : Seminar Course Description : This course focuses on the memoir as both a literary and a political form in the contemporary transnational world. It examines issues of gender across borders, framing Europe and the United States in a global context, especially in the post-September 11 world. We will begin by discussing short works from the autobiographical/memoir genre in conjunction with critical writings on topics such as theorizing personal experience, autobiography and testimonials, exile and diaspora. The next part of the course will situate women's memoirs in relation to contemporary narratives of transnationalism and globalization, using texts. That stage oppositions between Iran and the West. The concluding weeks of the course will examine some of the debates and cultural comparisons generated by recent parenting memoirs, as a genre presumably removed from politics.
