AMS 200 - Introduction to American Studies

Three Credits
Fall Semester

Introduction to the study of America from an interdisciplinary perspective, emphasizing critical analysis of culture though exploration of a wide range of cultural artifacts including literary and historical texts, visual images and material objects. Developing a critical understanding of such key concepts as race, gender, class, sexuality, citizenship, the border, empire, and nation, students will examine the many aspects of thought, expression, and behavior that have shaped and defined the complex society of the United States. In addition to studying the diverse cultural experiences and meanings that shape individual and collective notions of American identity, students will also explore self-reflexively their own relationship to America’s diverse history and culture.
