For 150 years, Louisa May Alcott's Little Women has been a touchstone for understanding American girlhood. This course explores key contexts, including Transcendentalism and the American Civil War; the novel's transgressive themes of gender and domesticity; and its many adaptations, to see how notions of girlhood have developed through time.
