“Frontiers” in American History and Culture

Image
American Studies 10 – “Frontiers” in American History and Culture TTh 9:30-11:00 am -  141 McCone; plus one one-hour discussion section per week Instructors: C. Palmer/M. Brilliant Class # 18860 - 4 units
Few, if any, concepts in American history and culture resonate more powerfully and reverberate more persistently than the “frontier.” This course will explore multiple manifestations of the frontier in United States history and culture, from the nineteenth century western frontier, to the early twentieth century overseas frontier associated with U.S. expansion abroad, to the mid-twentieth century’s “crabgrass” (or, suburban), “atomic,” and “final” (space) frontiers, to the late twentieth century’s “digital” / “electronic” frontier.  Each of these frontiers will serve as a lens through which we will introduce students to the concepts and methods of American Studies.
This course satisfies the Historical Studies AND the Social and Behavioral Sciences L&S breadth requirements.

Sharecropper (1952) Elizabeth Catlett (Washington D.C. 1915-Cuernavaca, Mexico 2012)
This course examines how today’s Latinx geographies were shaped by racialized and regionalized discourse and practice, setting the foundation for contemporary struggles over political, economic and social borders and identities along and across the Latin American diaspora.Specifically, the course incorporates the study of the United States’ relationship with Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean in order to understand how these histories map onto the productions of borders, regimes of migration and citizenship, and movements that increasingly articulate a decolonial turn in intellectual thought and within political and social action. We begin by exploring Mesoamerica and the Caribbean as physical and human spaces that were profoundly reshaped by European colonization…
