Courses

Course Number Course Title Mode Date and Time Syllabus
10061 AML3031 American Literature Ⅰ Mixed-Mode/Reduce Seat-Time(M) M,W 12:30 PM - 01:20 PM Not Online

PR: Grade of C (2.0) or better required in ENC 1101 and 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)

20028 AML3640 Native American Literature Mixed-Mode/Reduce Seat-Time(M) M,W 01:30 PM - 02:20 PM Not Online

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

This course structure is primarily historical, but it also uses region and culture in ways that are appropriate for various course goals. In contrast to the often romantic depiction of the American Indian in history or films like Dances with Wolves, this course surveys Native American literature from its traditional origins—including tales, songs, and oratory—to more modern responses in autobiography, fiction, poetry, and other contemporary genres by writers such as N. Scott Momaday and Louise Erdrich. In addition to learning about an alternate history and culture of North America and the “oral tradition” in different periods and regions, this course aims to explore a series of thematic and aesthetic continuities and to understand the various issues that face Native Americans both on and off reservation communities today. This course uses You Tube, film, and other media as part of its instruction. Course requirements include significant reading, participation, brief written responses, a 6-7 page critical paper, and a midterm and final exam.

(Note: This course fulfills the pre-1865 historical requirement. To enroll in this course, you must have previously taken ENC1101 and ENC 1102. ENG 3014 is highly recommended, but not required.)
