ENGL 23500 American Literature: Slavery and War

GE-Human Culture: Literature Slavery and war are intertwined sins in the origins of America—the place as well as the idea. In this course, you will learn about early Americans who struggled with the constant violence that they both created and resisted. You will read first-hand accounts of people who were enslaved and of people who were touched by the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. Ultimately, our purpose will be to understand the literature of the United States of the nineteenth century as a window on today.
