A200 Comparative American Identities (3 cr. hrs.) A&H
Examines the formation of legal, social, cultural, and economic
identities within the United States and U.S. controlled territories.
Who counts as "American?" To what ends have citizens and noncitizens
assumed, claimed, or refused "American" identity? This course employs
a comparative frame in considering elite and subordinated classes
(and/or gender, races, ethnicities, sexualities); institutional and
countercultural forms of self-definition; official history and
alterative acts of collective memory.
