Toward a Global "América": An Introduction to American Studies
AMST 175
Spring 2012 not offered

This course is intended as an introduction to interdisciplinary thought; to American studies as a field; and to the hemispheric and transnational intellectual direction of the American Studies program at Wesleyan. Its goal is to answer the question "What IS American studies?" and will make connections to the fields best represented in our program--ethnic studies, queer studies, cultural studies, and material culture--as well as to the social science and humanities fields that American studies draws on.

Essential Capabilities: Interpretation
The course will emphasize the different forms of evidence employed in American Studies, and the methods for reading them that American Studies' scholars employ.
