Students in this course will examine and discuss fiction, poetry and autobiographical writings by four of the seminal figures of the Native American Renaissance: N.Scott Momaday, Leslie Marmon Silko, Joy Harjo and James Welch. Collectively, these writers helped restore modes of traditional cultural expression and historical perspective long imperiled by the histories of European and U.S. Colonialism in the Americas. Their work is also deeply imbued with concerns for the landscape and ecology, including in regards to conditions within the reservation system. Additionally, we'll pay sizeable attention to critical assessments of the Native American Renaissance as offered in the work of figures such as Paula Gunn Allen, Louis Owens, Gerald Vizenor and others.
