This class takes early literature produced in the geographical location that would become the United States, roughly from 1620 to 1865, as a way to ask about gender, race, and nationalism in the emerging republic. We will read canonical authors—such writers as Benjamin Franklin, Phillis Wheatley, Thomas Jefferson, and Nathaniel Hawthorne—and we will read their contemporaries—figures such as Judith Sargent Murray, Charles Brockden Brown, Catharine Sedgwick, and Olaudah Equiano.
