This course introduces students to a variety of scholarly contributions and concepts used for the analysis of American culture. It focuses on different media and forms of cultural representation including film and TV. Addressed are theories on representation and signs, discourse and power, memory and time, race and privilege, gender and queer studies, class and popular culture. Students are encouraged to reflect critically on the ways these theories are engaged in the production of knowledge about symbolic and material practices.
A reader with material will be provided at the beginning of the class.
