20085 AML3076 Topics in American Literature Mixed-Mode/Reduce Seat-Time(M) M,W 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM Not Online

The theme for this particular topics course will be “The Immigrant Experience,” and while we cannot read texts about every group of immigrants that has come to the United States, we will read a representative sampling from 20th and 21st-century American literary texts. We will begin with Willa Cather’s My Ántonia published in 1918 and end the semester with The Book of Unknown Americans by Cristina Henriquez published in 2014.  The texts we will read address the experiences of immigrants as they find a way to balance old traditions, religious beliefs, and cultural practices with new or revised ones. The challenges are overwhelming at times, but the resilience of the human spirit is evident in these representations.

19578 AML3283 Cont American Women's Fiction Face to Face Instruction (P) Tu,Th 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM Not Online

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.

90855 AML3643 Cont Native Amer Prose & Poetr Mixed-Mode/Reduce Seat-Time(M) M,W 11:30 AM - 12:20 PM Not Online

In this course you will be reading nonfiction, novels, poetry, short stories, and essays 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. Negative images of Native Americans have been burned into our national consciousness. This course will challenge those images.

92739 AML4300 Major American Authors Face to Face Instruction (P) Tu,Th 10:30 AM - 11:45 AM Not Online

This course will focus on 1993 Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison’s novels from The Bluest Eye (1970) through Home (2012), 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.”

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 early 1950’s 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 the texts, students can expect to learn about the literary, cultural, and historical contexts surrounding them.

   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.
