Abstract:This course surveys American literature from colonial beginnings to the Civil
War by examining a range of writing by women and men from various cultural,
ethnic, and political traditions. Students read a broad selection of works Р
which may include spiritual autobiographies, travel narratives, slave
narratives, poetry, short stories, sermons, political tracts, novels, and
essays Р to engage in important contemporary debates over slavery,
colonialism, changing definitions of race, the emergence of nationalism, and
the nature of citizenship.
