In addition to developing student writing skills, this course will focus on the institution of slavery in the United States during the antebellum era (1820-1865). Readings will address the experience of slavery by both slaves and slave-owners, and contemporary understandings of the practice in both the North and South. The course will explore several divergent views of slavery (abolitionist, colonizationist, and pro-slavery), and attempt to comprehend how antebellum Americans came to such radically different conclusions about the South's "peculiar institution." Primary and secondary sources will also address the ways in which African Americans, both free and enslaved, participated in these debates, and in shaping the perception and practice of slavery.
