   The work of prolific and acclaimed contemporary Native American author Louise Erdrich (Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa) is the focus of this course. Students will read selected novels which depict the challenges the Chippewa (Ojibwe) and Anglos encountered during the settling of the northern plains and the consequences of this westward expansion that still affect Native Americans in the twenty-first century. Erdrich’s novels are rich with complex and contradictory characters and situations. The voices that fill these novels resonate with readers as they contest the stereotypes of Native Americans. Erdrich’s contribution to contemporary American literatures is significant.

   In this course you will be reading nonfiction, novels, poetry, and short stories by and about contemporary Native American (American Indian) authors. We will also read a screenplay and view a film, both of which were written by Native American authors. The presence of Native American literature as a part of English department offerings has increased during the last 40 years as have other ethnic literatures, but not without an uphill struggle. Nevertheless, the Native American texts that we read in this course are an integral part of our American literary and cultural heritage as they continue an ongoing revision of the dominant culture’s view of what it means to be Indian, “mixed blood” or ethnic in the United States. As Susan Pérez Castillo claims in “Postmodernism, Native American Literature and the Real: The Silko-Erdrich Controversy,” “Surely it is more productive in the evaluation of so-called ‘ethnic’ texts, to view ethnicity not as a static entity but rather as a dynamic, historically constructed process.” Negative images of Native Americans have been burned into our national consciousness. This course will challenge those images.

   The literature of the American West dates back to the beginnings of this country. In this course, however, students will read novels that were published from the late 1940s to the present. These novels, many of which were made into films, reflect the conflict between men and the challenging landscape they inhabit. By giving readers a glimpse into the American West through the eyes of the rugged individualists, the Western captured the American imagination. In addition to reading, discussing, and writing about texts, students can expect to learn about the literary, cultural, and historical contexts surrounding them.

AML 3041.0M02: American Literature II (Angley)

Spring 2018

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

This course surveys American literature(s) from 1865 to the present, a time when literary texts and traditions in the United States increased in kind and in number. We have many texts to choose from, and any choices exclude other choices. However, we will read a variety of texts in an attempt to become acquainted with the represented voices, voices that reflect the social, cultural, and ideological influences of their place in history. Some of the voices we will listen to have been anthologized widely, but others have only recently been included in the "canon" of American literature, a "canon" that continues to evolve. While we will play close attention to literary movements and genres as well as particular times and places in our history, we will look also at how gender, race, class, religion, culture and politics have influenced the formation of the texts we read. An understanding of context is necessary to our understanding and interpretation of literary expression during the turbulent times of increasing urbanization, great wars, economics, social, and political struggle and conflict, technological advances, and the alienation and fragmentation of our "modern" and "postmodern" world.

AML 4300.0001  Major American Authors: Morrison  (Angley)

Spring 2018

PR: Grade of C (2.0) or better required in ENG 3014.

This course will focus on 1993 Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison’s novels from The Bluest Eye (1970) through God Help the Child (2015), her short story “Recitatif,” and selected nonfiction as well as critical scholarly essays that discuss Toni Morrison and her oeuvre. Her texts will be situated in their historical, cultural, literary, and political contexts, and students will examine the transformative power of Morrison’s contributions to contemporary American literature. Morrison’s writing demands that students become actively involved in her project “to avert the critical gaze from the racial object to the racial subject; from the described and imagined to the describers and imaginers; from the serving to the served.”

This course includes American fiction written by women between 1970 and the present. The novels and short story collections confront issues of class, race, gender, age, sexuality, ethnicity, and culture and examine how these issues define women’s identities. The representations of women in these texts are complex—often rejecting systems of oppression that surround them.
