AMS 245 - Shaping American Identities in Moving Images

4 credits (Fall)
This course explores representations of American identities and the binaries generated by these explorations including here/there, foreign/local, abroad/ home, American/Other. Films and readings will highlight the theme of amalgamation as an alchemic process (the melting pot) shaping Americanness and its association with characteristics such as respectability, recognition and respect.

Prerequisite: one 100-level Humanities or Social Studies course.
Instructor: Gibel Mevorach
