|AMER 410 - THE AMERICAN STUDIES SEMINAR|
The American Studies Seminar serves as a "capstone course" for students completing the American studies major. The topics and descriptions vary according to the instructor, but each course will have students focusing on a specific topic, reading and discussing important secondary studies on that topic, and engaging in their own interdisciplinary study using a variety of primary and secondary sources. The course culminates in a substantial reserach project that gives students a chance to synthesize and advance work as American studies scholars.
AMERICAN HISTORY, AMERICAN VISUAL CULTURE: examines American history from the perspective of visual culture. Arranged chronologically, the course considers the many ways in which social and political issues in America have been framed and debated in visual terms. The course will range across a variety of visual sources--including paintings, prints, photographs, and film--and will culminate in a substantial research project. The selected readings will engage students with central issues in the field of visual culture studies, and with important recent works in American visual culture.
