The Idea of Woman

Development of curriculum for seminars on "The Idea of Woman," to be presented by faculty from five Claremont Colleges and Claremont Graduate School for a class composed of an equal mixture of traditional college-age students and students over 30 years of age. ABSTRACT: Development of curriculum for seminars on "The Idea of Woman," to be presented by faculty from the five Claremont Colleges and Claremont Graduate School for a class composed of an equal mixture of traditional college-age students and students over 30 years of age. Faculty members expected to participate in all course sessions which they do not teach. Fields of drama, poetry and the novel will provide basic texts with supplementary writings in the social sciences (psychology, economics, history, sociology and anthropology). Subject matter of the course will produce laboratory situation in which administrators, faculty and students can assess attitudinal change produced by humanistic teaching. Courses: Great Mother of the Pre-Hellenic World; Patriarchal Greece and Rome; Courtly Love and Mariolatry (worship of the Virgin Mary); Enlightenment and Industry; Modern Woman in Western Literature; Non-European Woman; American Men and Women, Age Definitions; Psychobiology; 1970. Course developed partially as means of counteracting lack of historical awareness inherent in emotionalism of current neo-feminism (e.g., Women's Lib). Deliberate age-mix of participants to evaluate dynamics of generational mix. Funds for salaries, office supplies, editorial and pub. costs, indirect costs.
