Notes: This course is graded on a Credit/No Credit basis. Topical Course Description: What does “American” mean? Who counts as "White" or "Asian" on the United States census? Which states belong to the “South”? What does the term “Neoliberal” mean today? Keywords in American Studies introduces students to historical and contemporary terms that mark sites of unresolved conflict and contestation in the United States. None of these terms are unfamiliar sounding as they appear in every dictionary. The purpose of this course is to emphasize how these meanings have been made and altered over time. In lecture and through reading and film viewing, students will learn about these terms, their histories, their contexts, and associated prominent scholars and figures. Students will make meaning about this information through in-class discussion and collaborative writing. Students will be assessed through quizzes, presentations, and creative scholarly projects such as archive building. This course encourages students to be self-reflexive, open-minded, and future-oriented in their inquiry and analysis of these terms. Note: This course is offered through the Undergraduate Bridge Program, a pre-matriculation language and academic skill-building program. Any interested undergraduate student may enroll. Please consult with the Bridge Program Academic Coordinator for details.
