(no subject)

Hello. I'm Heather. I'm 21, and a senior at UC Santa Cruz. My majors are literature and history, I'm obsessed with the 18th century Atlantic world, and I love reading/writing with a feminist/fem theory slant.

Current favorites include Barbara Kingsolver, Jane Austen, Audre Lorde, Adrienne Rich, Judith Butler, Gilbert and Gubar, and Gayatri (sp?) Spivak.

I also just finished Liberty's Daughters, by Mary Beth Norton, one of my favorite historians. She focuses on women's experience during the American Revolution and afterward.

So, I guess that's it for now. This is a cool community. I'm not a women's studies major so I never felt right in the other feminist-themed communities, but I am an avid reader and writer. Here's a poem I wrote with multiple female literary references you might enjoy:
