gender in community
So I am thinking about the novels I am going to teach and the women's issues that will come up--this seems like a good spot to find other bloggers in Community 2.0. So for example I will be teaching Edwidge Danticat's Breath, Eyes, Memory (Haiti) and Buchi Emecheta's Second Class Citizen (Nigeria). Both have women who migrate to completely different cultures and struggle with oppression and redefinition...
We'll also be looking at conditions in Haiti and the intersections of postcolonialism and globalization
