before the Columbian era; consider the roles of writing, communication, and sign systems in the era of discovery, colonization, and conquest; and/or examine how transatlantic encounters and collisions birthed new literacies and literatures, and transformed existing ones. We will consider aural and visual communication, along with varied metaphorical, cultural, and technological "literacies."

In his essay "Walking," Henry David Thoreau says, "We go eastward to realize history and study the works of art and literature, retracing the steps of the race; we go westward as into the future, with a spirit of enterprise and adventure." Similarly, in All the King's Men, Robert Penn Warren's protagonist remarks on a trip westward, "For West is where we all plan to go some day." Yet, Warren's west is starkly different from Thoreau's. The myth of the American West has provided a geographical space for philosophers, writers, artists, and filmmakers to interrogate, personal as well as cultural, ambivalence towards the promises of Manifest Destiny, the American Dream, capitalism, individualism, diversity, and community.
