Description:

This course offers an historical and self-reflexive exploration of Native North American literature in English (with some work in translation) and its meaning for us as Canadians, both Native and non-Native. After some grounding readings and presentations from the oral tradition of Native 'mythology,' the class will focus on works written in the last two centuries, with an emphasis on the modern and contemporary periods of the twentieth-century. Specific course content varies from year to year. Native Studies students who have not completed the prerequisite may request permission from the Department Chair to take ENGL 3277. This course may be credited towards Native Studies.
