Write a paper that makes an argument about gender or sexuality in Girl, Woman, Other. Focus on a specific chapter, character, or theme within the text and make a claim about how the text reflects, adds to, or changes the concepts of gender and sexuality as we’ve discussed them – for example, you might focus on the social construction of gender and sexuality as evidenced in the book, the different ways of doing feminism, intersectionality, and the inclusion or exclusion of trans people from different feminist practices.
The evidence for your argument should come from the text itself – i.e. detailed textual analysis and close readings – and from 1-2 of our other readings so far. You do not need to find or use other sources, though you may.
You should have at least one detailed, close reading of a passage of GWO
This should not be solely a description of how one can see the concept of gender or sexuality or feminism in the text–that’s clear to any casual reader. Rather, you need to make an argument about how the text constructs gender, sexuality, or feminism; this argument will determine the structure of your paper.
As you search for a topic, ask yourself what interested you about the book. What questions came up as you read the text, and what topics were brought to mind? What other texts from our syllabus came to mind as you read this novel?
