ALANA U.S.Ethnic Studies: American Identity 21st Century
ALAN 095 OL1 (CRN: 60655)
"This summer session four-week ALANA course explores the complex idea of identity in America in building a frame of analysis that will allow us to pose new considerations and critiques on American identity in the twenty-first century. We will address and think through African American, Latino/a, and Asian American experiences and identities in contemplation of the distinct heterogeneity of American experience, and the impossibility of having any firm definition of American identity. We will pressure this type of thinking through the dynamics of how one is seen, imaged, and imagined in American society according to such factors as community, inequality, race, ethnicity, and gender. We will focus on a variety of readings that include critical essays and analyses, journalistic commentaries, and short stories. Our readings will be complemented by other multi-media lectures, interviews, and biographies."
