Whiteness and Resistance: Investigating Student Concepts of White Privilege in the Writing Classroom

Gail Godwin‘s novels emphasize the forging of the female self/identity. Even Godwin‘s earliest critics stress the ways Godwin consistently chooses to portray female protagonists as complex female characters; as Godwin‘s critics point out, the crafting of female identity becomes central to the analysis and understanding of Godwin‘s ―vision‖ of/for female identity. My analysis of Godwin‘s work extends from and beyond the groundwork laid by earlier critics. I contend that, even as God
