Religion, Gender and Sex in Early America Spring Katie Krywokulski; Alison Davis This course will examine American religion, gender, and sexuality from the colonial period to the Civil War using the conceptual framework of possession. The historical arc of class will begin in seventeenth century America with the possessed bodies of young women, occupied and claimed by the devil. We will learn about the life of the Publick Universal Friend, born Jemima Wilkinson, who after a near death experience, claimed to have been possessed by God and transformed into a being who was neither male nor female. We will then attend to Quaker writings about women, and the kinds of authority they could claim over the pulpit and their homes. We will read nineteenth century erotic fiction of Protestant girls kidnapped by Catholics and Mormons, their sexual and spiritual violation at the hands of their captors, and their struggles to retain possession of their souls as their bodies were taken prisoner. We will also discuss the roots of the pervasive fears of Catholics and Mormons, and how those fears relate to historical conceptions of femininity, marriage, sexuality, and family. We will examine how concepts of the seducer and the seduced shift according to gender, and how this relates to religious ideals of self-possession and self-control in antebellum America.
