AmCon 210 Journeys and Encounters
The dynamic, multidimensional character of American culture originates in the journeys and encounters of groups defined by race/ethnicity and factors such as gender, religion, sexual orientation and social class. As they respond to opportunities, challenges, and conflicts groups construct meaning and produce art and literature. Using the tools of social science and artistic and literary studies, students will examine resulting changes and how institutions, ideas, and policies shape (and are shaped by) these processes.
