AMS 205 - Issues in American Studies (2 Cr.)


This foundation course introduces students to both the historical and the theoretical dimensions of American studies. The course will emphasize the variety of projects being done in the field, including those that examine questions of nationhood and national identity, ethnography, gender, and popular culture. The course focuses on the characteristics that these projects share, including the commitment to interdisciplinarity, study of the connections and disconnections between elite and popular forms, and the examination of the role of the intellectual in cultural practice. Prerequisite: sophomore standing. Spring semester, offered 2011/12 and alternate years. Marchand.
