Social networks, multimedia, the rapid transmission of information across cultural boundaries and geographic distances: the twenty-first century can seem like a brave new world for communication. Yet the peoples of the Americas have long been involved in creative ways of connecting with each other. This course surveys the history of communication in early America, from wampum beads to oral traditions, speeches to incendiary political pamphlets, comets to newspapers, inscribed rocks to Neoclassical poetry.
