In this class, we will analyze, discuss, and learn about a wide range of fiction by nineteenth-, twentieth-, and twenty-first-century New Orleans women writers. Beginning with Kate Chopin’s Creole stories of the nineteenth century, we’ll also read short stories by Alice Dunbar Nelson, Shirley Anne Grau, Ellen Gilchrist, Moira Crone, and N.K. Jemisin. These works represent a wide range of topics, themes, and people, all set in the richly diverse setting of New Orleans, from the Southern Gothic to the “Southern Gnostic” (as Moira Crone’s work has been characterized). Readings will be provided by the instructor.
