Course Description

The United States has experienced radical changes since 1865. The literature written during this period brings to life the social, cultural, artistic, and political climate of the time. By critically reading, discussing, and responding in writing to a variety of American texts written since 1865, students explore themes such as the conflict between the urban and rural, migration, industrialization, progress, globalization, language, freedom, and identity.
