This course surveys American literature from colonial beginnings to the Civil War by examining a range of writing by women and men from various cultural, ethnic, and political traditions. Students read a broad selection of works – which may include spiritual autobiographies, travel narratives, slave narratives, poetry, short stories, sermons, political tracts, novels, and essays – to engage in important contemporary debates over slavery, colonialism, changing definitions of race, the emergence of nationalism, and the nature of citizenship.
