ENG 247 - Archetypes in Black Women’s Fiction


The primary purpose of English 247 is to look for recurring character types in fiction written by contemporary African American women authors from the end of the Civil Rights era (1970s) to the present. And we will also examine the works in their cultural contexts, seeking to understand how the texts reflect the racial and gender concerns of their historical periods. Ultimately, English 247 fosters literary appreciation of African American women’s fiction.
