ENGL 235 - Topics in Native American Literature

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: ENGL 102
Native Americans have been creating texts for thousands of years, and they are as varied and dynamic as the many nations themselves. In this course, students will explore some aspect of this literature, with topics ranging from the most enduring oral traditions to the most contemporary novels, stories and poems. Whatever the topic, students will examine how Native texts take shape in specific tribal and historical contexts and learn how Native people have used writing to engage in the long struggle to preserve Native sovereignty. Offered alternate years. (CHUM; CMCL; CWRT)
