AMST 4401 - Literature of the Americas


This course explores a wide range of (broadly defined) fictions from and about the Americas, from writings by Columbus and the conquistadors through modern and contemporary novels, novellas, and short stories. Students consider the intersection of fiction and history through topics that include New world “discovery” and conquest; borderlands and contact zones; slavery and revolution; and the haunting of the global present by the colonial past.
