ISP 115 - The American Identities (3 Cr.)


The premise of the January-term ISP course is that our understanding of other cultures is enriched by knowledge of our own. And what better way to know a culture than to study its dreams. This course examines the American Dream in its many forms—including the dream of rags to riches, of owning a house with a white picket fence, and of human equality. We will be using literature, visual art, film, speeches, historic documents, museum exhibitions and theater performances in order to explore what the shifting content of our national dreams reveals about our deepest aspirations and anxieties. January intersession. Curry and Marchand
