Topics in Interdisciplinary American Studies

AMST-A 350

Course Description

Focusing on a specific topic (which will vary by semester), students reflect on established American studies disciplinary methodologies and explore possibilities for new interdisciplinary syntheses. Students consider such issues as the questions a historian asks of a political manifesto and how these questions differ from those of the literary critic or the sociologist. Maybe repeated with a different topic for a maximum of 6 credit hours.
