ENGL 2660 - 19th Century African American Literature

In this course, we will encounter the poetry, fiction, journals, essays, speeches, and songs of nineteenth-century African-American writers. By paying close attention to the personal as well as cultural forms of expression, we will observe how the anguish, joy, and even the mundane aspects of the early African-American experience translate into a distinct canon of literature. Representative authors include Phillis Wheatley, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Jacobs, Frances E.W. Harper, Pauline Hopkins, and W.E.B. Dubois. This course is cross-listed with AAST 2660   AIA, ART, DP, LIT, LI
