19253 AML3613 Narratives of Slavery Mixed-Mode/Reduce Seat-Time(M) Tu 09:00 AM - 10:15 AM Not Online

This Web literature course will examine the stories of American literature that focus specifically upon the institution of chattel slavery from the 18th & 19th centuries. We will read narratives that were written by the ex-slaves and the modern literary theories that have helped us understand them. In this way the course will be an historical, theoretical examination of themes, topics, ideas, and perspectives--all of which will be firmly grounded in theories about story-telling, or narrative.

The class will be led primarily by independent reading, Power Point teacher lectures, and short writing assignments. The writing assignments will be an opportunity to reflect on the Power Point lectures, readings--including the critical essays--and to ask questions. Regularly scheduled quizzes and exams are designed to enable students to stay up with the readings.
