Archiving America
ENGL 341
Fall 2020 not offered

How do we know what we know? This seminar will explore how the literary archive has shaped diverse imaginings of America and the politics of knowledge production. We will read primary works in which archives feature prominently and that compel us to question how we determine what an archive is and what its meanings are. To interweave archival theory and practice, we will also work with Wesleyan's Special Collections and Archives. Students will have the option of delving into their own materials or the University's archives to undertake projects that illuminate something new about America.
