Description

Gendered Fictions helps students explore how fiction and nonfiction texts construct gender by encouraging readers to take up "gendered" reading positions that support or challenge particular versions of masculinity and femininity. Students are invited to gain leverage on this process by using text-based discussions and activities to consider such factors as generic characters and intertextuality in order to assess the readings they (or others) produce, as well as to generate resistant or alternative readings when they so choose. Thirteen texts for analysis--from authors including Charlotte Perkins Gilman and Toni Cade Bambara--are reprinted in the book. Gendered Fictions offers itself not as a source of final truth but as a tool to help students develop critical competence in "reading" gender. NOTE: Customers outside of the United States and Canada should contact Chalkface Press at www.chalkface.net.au for purchasing information.
