ENG 2222 - SLAVE NARRATIVE


Students taking this course will read, discuss, and write about a variety of slave narratives from Equiano’s 1789 tale to Bok’s 2003 narrative. We will discuss the slave narrative as a genre, the authors’ motivations for publishing such accounts, and the social and literary impact of these texts. Students will hone their writing and critical thinking skills as well as develop an historical understanding of U.S. and recent worldwide slavery and slave narratives as we read, discuss, and write about a number of texts. Expect quizzes, in-class writing, informal response papers, and exams. Honors students will also give an oral presentation.

Credits: 3 cr.
