Film Studies 5 Beyond Sleepy Hollow: Stories of Early America and the Hudson River Valley

March 16 – April 13, 2021 In connection with Poetry of Nature: Hudson River Landscapes from the New-York Historical Society, this course will spotlight people who contributed to our nation’s burgeoning literary sense of self with themes of America’s “natural bounty.” During this time in America’s development and expansion, writers like Emily Dickenson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Willa Cather, Edgar Allan Poe, put their stamps on our literary legacy. This series will be a mix of drama and documentary cinema, to heighten our awareness, together with our excellent art exhibition, of things “early American.”
