Department Section Description: 

English 461 is an introduction to the literature of colonial North America and the Early United States, from the 1530s to the 1820s. This course is designed around four feature films: Cabeza de Vaca, Black Robe, Pocahontas, and Jefferson in Paris. These movies were based on the exploration narratives, stage dramas, missionary relations, autobiographies and natural history narratives that we will read.
