American Literature from the Colonial Period to the Civil War
ENGL 203
Fall 2020 not offered
Crosslisting: AMST 243

This is a lecture course that introduces American literature and culture through the middle of the 19th century while also attending closely to a small number of significant texts. We will concern ourselves with the major (and some minor) political questions, with the reconstruction of historical ideologies, and with the relationship between textual nuance and large-scale social transformation. We will proceed as both close readers and historical synthesizers, one eye focused on the minute details of our readings and the other trained on the slowly emerging outline of a history of "American Literature."
