ENG 359 - Native American Literature Credits: 3


Exploration of literature written by Native American authors, which may include biography, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, and critical essays. In addition to studying these texts as literary productions, students will learn historical, political, and cultural background to help them understand their context more fully, especially in terms of their shaping through colonial contact. Content and focus may vary by instructor and may include the complex interplay between social and political forces, the traditions and customs of particular nations, the incorporation and re-articulation of elements from traditional Indian culture, and the sustained focus on individual writers. Issues of identity and authenticity, language and orality, stereotyping and prejudice will be central to this course. Expect to write at least one lengthy analytical paper. This course satisfies the requirement for a course in Identities.

Prerequisite(s): ENG 130
