ENGL 5513 American Studies Senior Seminar (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

Where in the world is American Studies? That is the central question we will take up in this seminar, and we will attempt to answer it by exploring different accounts of Americans traveling and living abroad as sailors, exiles, soldiers, expatriates, and tourists. Through a selection of readings and films, we will consider the ways in which American identities and cultures from the nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries take shape and transform through different global encounters.
