American Studies 207: Cities in Modern America; T 11:45-1:10; Th 12:45-2:05; Instructor: Eric Fure-Slocum; Spring 2015

This course explores the history and culture of cities in the United States, ranging from the industrial cities in the later-19th century to efforts to design sustainable cities in the 21st century.  We will pay attention to the spatial, social, and physical history of cities, as well as the changing images of cities in American culture. While focused on cities themselves, we also will look at the changing relationship between cities and suburbs and the development of metropolitan America. The course will be a mixture of discussions, lectures, and presentations. We will make use of literature, film, and a range of primary sources to study cities.

 

American Studies 301 – “1968: New American Revolutions”; MWF 2-2:55; Instructor: Mark Allister; Spring 2015

“Ya say you want a revolution? Well…” Students in this class will not be examining Chevrolet’s ad campaign for its new line of cars, but will be immersing themselves in one transformative year: 1968. We will look at the Tet offensive and its impact on the Vietnam War, which affected the presidential campaigns; we’ll examine the protesting of the Miss America pageant, where feminists crowned a sheep; we’ll try to understand why two greatly influential American leaders who could bring people together – Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy – were assassinated; we’ll read about the Columbia University protests, where black student leaders threw the white protesters out of “their” occupied building. We’ll learn more about Black Power, the summer Olympics, George Wallace’s segregationist “law and order” campaign and how that helped Richard Nixon win election. We’ll listen to songs, watch films, read essays. 1968 is a year in a time period that is mythologized history, and we’ll think hard about how and why the era is mythologized, as we do our own exploration about that year. All students will do a final project in the last few weeks of the term, taking up some issue after 1968 to see the continuities and differences.
