The theme for this particular course—AML 3076: Topics in American Literature—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.

   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.

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.
