FAIR 313D - Slave Narratives and Other Testimonies of the Old South

This is an upper division course that examines the history of African and African-American slavery in the U.S. Starting from 1619, we will be exploring the development of the slave system, also referred to as the ‘peculiar institution,’ from the view point of enslaved African Americans, to the final collapse and destruction of slavery during the Civil War. While the predominant source of documentation will be narratives and other testimonies written during the 19th century, we will also pay attention to how scholars have approached slavery over the years.

Prerequisites & Notes:
Any lower division U.S. history course or AMST 204 or FAIR 203A; or permission of instructor.

Credits: 5
Grade Mode: S/U
