51009 AML3031 American Literature Ⅰ Web B Web Not Online

PR: Grade of C (2.0) or better required in ENC 1102; ENG 3014 is highly recommended

This survey course is designed to introduce you to a wide and rich variety of literature from the period of colonization to the mid-19th century, including works representing some of the diverse ethnic and racial strands of our literary heritage such as slave narratives, Native American literature and women writers. Since this course covers writings from Native American sources through the Civil War, we will become familiar with the contextual circumstances surrounding the production of a given text and explore the development and expression of some fundamental ideas—-assumptions, myths, and beliefs—that still influence the ways Americans think about themselves and their society. In addition to studying a range of prose, poetry, and fictional works, we study what it means to work within the “contact zone,” to be an American, and explore the canon of early American literature through aesthetic, rhetorical, and literary themes.

Students will acquire valuable research, writing, critical analysis and synthesis skills through intensive study of research methods, scholarly essays, database familiarity, and peer review paired alongside the assigned literature. The first half of the semester covers the literature, the second half involves the development of the 10-12 page research paper that will be developed throughout the semester in research installments. Students will be expected to conduct independent research and to write and read frequently and critically on topics related to literary research and writing.

(Kamrath)

PR: Grade of C (2.0) or better required in ENC 1102

This survey course is designed to introduce you to a wide and rich variety of literature from the period of colonization to the mid-19th century, including works representing some of the diverse ethnic and racial strands of our literary heritage as well as texts by women writers frequently excluded from literary collections. Since this course covers writings from Native American sources through the Civil War, we will become familiar with the historical circumstances surrounding the production of a given text and explore the development and expression of some fundamental ideas—-assumptions, myths, and beliefs—that still influence the ways Americans think about themselves and their society. In addition to studying a range of prose, poetry, and fictional works, we will also closely examine their aesthetic or rhetorical dimensions and practice ways of identifying representative issues and themes. The course uses You Tube, film, and other media as part of its instruction.

Course requirements include weekly reading and discussion; several brief essays, along with a 6-7 page critical paper, and a mid-term and final examination. (Note: To enroll in this course you must have previously taken ENC1101 and ENC 1102. ENG 3014 is highly recommended. This course satisfies the “Literary History” requirement)
