AMST 7520:America in Transnational Context

3 Class Hours 0 Laboratory Hours 3 Credit Hours
Prerequisite: Admission to the graduate program in American Studies or permission of the program director.
Examines interactions between Americans and other international groups. The course may address several time periods and locations or focus on a single case study (e.g., the impact of cross-cultural contact in a specific region or era). Besides secondary research from diverse disciplines, students use primary texts from popular culture to interpret the influence of American culture in other parts of the world (e.g., American television as viewed in other lands) and the ways that immigration of new groups has shaped the social landscape in the U.S. Course may be repeated for credit provided the content differs entirely from the previous offering.
