[info]limyaael @ 02:35 am: I think that book probably will depress my students (assuming that LeGuin's genderless society does not freak them out before then). But then, since this is a class that a lot of people take just to fulfill the "intensive writing requirement" my university has, a lot of them will be coming in with no background in women's literature/feminism at all, let alone these concepts. That is why the first class is going to be a lecture with basic concepts like the difference between gender and sex, etc. :) I can prepare them a little.

The Holdfast trilogy is Charnas, right? I've read the first two! Walk to the End of the World and Motherlines. They were excellent. I haven't acquired the third one yet, but am waiting for it to ship.
