This course will look at the early years of the nation. We’ll examine western expansion and discover the revolution in economics and transportation with the first factories and canals, roads, and railroads. All was fueled by millions of immigrants, welcomed by the North and spurned by the South, who focused on the new crop, cotton grown by slaves. We’ll also delve into the religious and philosophical trends of the time, the Second Great Awakening, the Reform and Abolition Movements, and the Transcendentalists.

Three centuries ago, English author Daniel Defoe, inspired by a true story, penned a tale of a man shipwrecked on a deserted island who survives by his wits, his hope, and help from a loyal companion who he rescues. This Robinson Crusoe novel was so popular that it inspired numerous desert island, adventure, and survival stories in literature and film, which became known as “Robinsonade”. This presentation explores the themes that still resonate in our times.
