This course will offer you diverse Native perspectives and debates on Native American literature. Each part of the course focuses on a cultural quality or value, an element of literature, and a time period. Together, these provide a sense of Native American literature in historical and cultural context.
Students will learn about the historical construction of colonizing stereotypes of Indians; how Native writers use humor to evoke, play with, and intervene in these stereotypes; a sense of tribal diversity, of uniqueness and commonalities; culturally appropriate theories for reading Native American literature; and historical contexts inherent in much Native literature that register as tensions between Native and Western cultural qualities and values.
We will work with ways Native literature negotiates the historical legacy of power dynamics, clarifies the stakes of cultural values, and addresses contemporary issues that we face globally.
