Open Anthology of American Literature book cover

Open Anthology of American Literature

CC BY (Attribution)   English

Author(s): Farrah Cato

Publisher: UCF Pressbooks

Last updated: 02/10/2021

This anthology is divided into five major sections, starting with the Colonial period and ending with the publication of Harriet Jacobs’s <em>Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl </em>on the eve of the Civil War. Each section includes an overview and framework for approaching the readings, as well as overarching questions to help students think about the connections between the texts. There is also a brief introduction to each of the authors featured in these sections, followed by discussion questions based on the texts. The textual introductions do not include a great deal of biographical material; instead, I have used them to provide a frame (typically connected to the larger section introduction) that I hope will help students to navigate from. The discussion questions could also easily be used as open-ended exam questions or as essay prompts. Some of the discussion questions are also invitations for students to make intertextual connections, or to consider how the literary landscape changes from its “beginnings” to the Civil War.

By engaging with this resource which presents texts by diverse world writers from 1650 to the present, learners will: (1) engage with diverse world writers in translation, including canonical and less canonical texts, and (2) identify literary conventions and trends across genres. The texts are in chronological order, but can be adapted by the faculty in whatever way they see fit. Each text is introduced with a brief discussion of author, original language and time period, and the literary conventions the students can expect to see in the text.

Pendant le semestre d’automne 2020, en pleine crise du Covid-19, les étudiants du cours de Survol de la littérature française de l’ancien régime à UCF se sont retrouvés sur Zoom pendant quatre mois et demi.

Pour rendre la collaboration hebdomadaire et l’expérience de l’apprentissage plus vivantes, nous avons décidé d’organiser une conférence virtuelle pendant laquelle les étudiants se sont organisés en panels par thème, et ont présenté les articles de recherche sur lesquels ils ont travaillé pendant le semestre.

Puis nous avons décidé de pousser l’expérience jusqu’au bout et de publier nos propres actes de la conférence.
