Grounded in academic theory and focusing on literature, folklore, and legends, this writing-intensive course explores broad issues of representation, cultural, social, and political issues and the shaping of a unique culture and people. Through the study of folklore in its various forms; classic and contemporary literature by New England authors; and oral legends, the student gains a broader understanding of New England; its history and culture; and their own role in shaping the culture and world in which they live. A field trip immerses the student in the living history of New England.
