ENGL 3217 - Appalachian Literature

3 hours
Prerequisites: A grade of “C”or better in ENGL 2110  or ENGL 2120  or ENGL 2210  or ENGL 2220  or ENGL 2310  or ENGL 2320 . Anthropologist Katherine Ledford has written, “Always part of the mythical South, Appalachia continues to languish backstage in the American drama, still dressed, in the popular mind at least, in the garments of backwardness, violence, poverty, and hopelessness.” In an effort to both understand and critique the stereotypes attached to Appalachia and its people, this course examines the literature of the Southern Appalachian region through a range of genres that may include travel writing, local color stories, poetry, novels, short stories, and nonfiction prose.
