Cultural Studies 1030
Welcome to the Frontier Heritage Homepage. This course
is designed to acquaint you with the history of the North American
frontier as reflected in the music, art, literature and film we will
examine this quarter. Some of the common threads in these portrayals of
frontier experience are related to the "character" or "nature" of
Americans and Canadians.In addition, the frontier seems to be one of the
chief sources of archetypes and stereotypes that inform and infect our
culture; it is the ground where European culture met and was reformed by
the indigenous cultures of the Americas. To get some sense of what historical periods and works the course covers take a look at the student developed Timeline for the topics and materials.
