LIBS 601 - AMERICA AS A MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY
This course explores the way in which the United States, throughout its history, has dealt with the internal challenges of reconciling its mostly British origins with an increasingly multicultural population. It emphasizes the tensions and accommodations between aspects of the dominant culture and new ethnic groups and ideas, with a particular emphasis on the "voices" of those outside the mainstream. The course integrates history, literature and law to examine the following themes: (a) the way the nation has been affected by the immigration of groups believed at the time to be inassimilable, from Africans to Catholics to Asians; (b) the political and social forces which have acted to hold the nation together despite the diverse nature of its peoples; and (c) how these forces are affecting contemporary American society.
