YPSP 107 - Filipina Literature

Unit(s): 4

This class is dedicated entirely to Filipina (or Pinay) Lit. In this class, we will read and discuss poems, stories, memoir and diaries, novels, creative essays, and comix all written by Filipino women, about the lives and life experiences of Filipino women and girls in the world. This course asks the questions: How do our Filipina/Pinay authors and artists represent Filipina/Pinays throughout history and in contemporary times? What informs those representations? Who are our Filipina/Pinay narrators, characters, speakers? What are their narratives/life stories? How do they interact with one another? How do they grow? What do they learn? Do these women and girls have any power? What are their relationships to power and systems of knowledge?
