Course Description

This course examines the formation of legal, social, cultural, and economic identities within the United States and within U.S.controlled territories. Who counts as American? To what ends have citizens and non-citizens assumed, claimed, or refused American identity? This course employs a comparative frame in considering elite and subordinated classes (and/or genders, races, ethnicities, sexualities); institutional and countercultural forms of self-definition; official history and alternative acts of collective memory. 

Instructor: Dr. Colin Johnson
