ENGL 55.14 Native American Oral Traditional Literatures

Native American oral tradition constitutes a rich and complex dimension of the American literary heritage. This course will examine a range of oral genres from several time periods and tribal sources. Oral traditions and the textual sources into which they are anthologized provide valuable insights into the nature of human creativity. They are also full of unique hermeneutical challenges. This course will include some contemporary theoretical approaches to orality and the metaphysics of the voice to unpack some of these questions.
