Instructor(s): Mark Block
Beginner Beginner Beginner

In his groundbreaking book 1491, author Charles Mann uses contemporary research to provide readers with a startling view of the large and vibrant civilizations that flourished in the Americas before the voyages of Columbus opened the floodgates to European settlers. In this timely class, we will examine Mann’s book and discuss the ways in which preconceived ideas about native populations continue to shape the way we view native communities today.
