Spring 2023
Section: 01  

Educational systems are crucial to the creation of national citizens, cultural actors, and individual souls; they are, in Althusser's terms, Institutional State Apparatuses. "School Days" range from the Puritans' New England Primer to the debates over critical race theory. The course aims to examine the formation and development of the educational system in the United States, primarily through fiction--novels and movies--supplemented with historical documents and scholarly articles.
