About the course:
This course explores the literary traditions that come out of the European conquest of North America: the literature of exploration; Puritan writing; captivity narratives; Native American oral traditions; Enlightenment debates and satire; early republican fiction up until the 1830s. These cultural expressions are mined for what they reveal about issues of violence, conquest, religion, race, and nationhood.
