The field of American Studies has changed in the last quarter century from an emphasis on American exceptionalism to a consideration of the relationships between the United States and the World. We will be particularly concerned with how American conceptions of race and ethnicity are influenced by global phenomena, and how global processes shape America’s enduring social, political and cultural structures. This course will up varying topics on this theme, including, but not limited to, immigration, U.S. imperialism, the construction and dissolution of borders, diasporic identities, and transnational cultures. Alternate years. (4 Credits)
