MES 350 - Maine Women

This interdisciplinary course examines women’s experiences in Maine, both historical and current. Through readings, writing assignments, and discussions, this course considers Maine women individually and collectively in such roles as industrial workers, reformers, performers, writers, politicians, and mothers. This course asks several major questions: How have Maine’s particular environment, culture, economy, and history shaped women’s experiences in the state? How have national movements (for example suffrage, ERA, welfare reform) shaped women’s lives in Maine? How have issues of class, race, and ethnicity intersected with gender in Maine?
