EN321 AMERICAN LITERATURE I 2025 1 English and World Languages 3.0 (BS=0.0, ET=0.0, MA=0.0)

All works will be considered in the context of cultural and intellectual history. We will consider a broad range of genres and modes of writing, including (but not limited to) colonial theory, ethnography, autobiography, fiction, essays, and poetry. A central concern of the course will be the question of what constitutes American literature.
