Primary Instructor:

As Europeans began settling colonies in North America in the seventeenth century, they frequently remarked that they had discovered a vacant wilderness. In reality, colonizers were all too aware of the presence of diverse groups of Native Americans. Native Americans were likewise conscious of the many problems and possibilities presented by the swelling numbers of European settlers in their midst. Cultural interaction, not isolation, became a common and integral part of life for most people living in North America during the colonial and early national periods. This freshman-level writing course will explore the diversity of those interactions through the analytical lens of the frontier, revealing stories of cooperation and competition, cohabitation and captivity, exchange and exploitation, diplomacy and conflict, assimilation and removal. Far from being a static boundary zone, the frontier was a dynamic and constantly shifting geographic, economic, political, and cultural space.
