This course examines a three-dimensional, non-linear history of the United States from the late 19th century through the 21st century. The lenses of gender, race, and socio-cultural movements will be used to engage with music, images, and writings over 100 years. We will not only be studying pivotal political and economic events, but directly interacting with and dissecting media representations surrounding these occurrences and the impacts they had on American society.
This class engages with speculative, pop-ontological, and techno-anxiety inducing sci-fi to explore the broad spectrum of realities presented in visual as well as written narratives, and to critique the social constructions of bodies and spaces in “The Future”.
This course explores the multivalent applications, meanings, and values of American [sub]culture(s). In stark contrast to mainstream spaces of school, work, and home, subcultures create different social formations and expressions that rebel against a positivist direction.
