Readings for March 3rd

Posted: November 14, 2020 in Readings

As most of you know, we are quickly running out of time, and the President of the U has opted to forego fall break and end the semester earlier.  This means we’ll have to continue to jettison important readings.  A number of you have made a real effort to keep the pace, while others of you have scarcely made an effort at all.  That’s your own business; just know that you’ll be graded accordingly.

Here is a set of three massively influential feminist statements, each of which is quite different from the other two.  I only expect you to read the second, by Linda Nochlin, though the other two are there for youy perusal.

Simone de Beauvoir
The Second Sex (1949)

Linda Nochlin
(b. 1931)
“Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” (1971)


Laura Mulvey
(b. 1941)
“Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema” (1975)
