FALL 2014

ASCP. 81000 - Introduction to American Studies  GC:  R, 6:30-8:30 p.m.,Rm. TBA, 3 credits, Prof. Burke, [25772] Cross listed with MALS 73100.  

This course examines the intellectual and institutional histories of scholarship in American Studies, and the American Studies movement, from the middle decades of the twentieth century to the present. We will read and discuss classic and contemporary texts, with an emphasis on interdisciplinary works in cultural history, literary studies, and the social sciences. In particular, we will consider such models and metaphors as “culture,” “civilization,” “mind,” “myth,” and “national character,” and how they have been employed by academics and social critics.

The course is required for students in the American Studies Certificate Program, and also welcomes Americanists from the Ph.D. Programs in English, History, Art History, Music, Theater, Urban Education, and the M.A. Program in Liberal Studies.

 ASCP. 89000 - Dissertation Workshop    GC:  T, 4:15-6:15 p.m., Rm. TBA, 0 credits, Prof. Faherty, [25103] Course open to Level 2 and Level 3 students only.  

This workshop will give students the opportunity to develop and complete their dissertation prospectus and/or produce dissertation chapters.  It will primarily be conducted as a workshop with students reading and commenting on one another’s work, but will also include visits from faculty from across the disciplines who will offer brief presentations about their own scholarly praxis. We will discuss writing and revision, research, documentation,etc. We will also pay special attention to the challenges of writing about previously neglected archival materials.  We will also work on how to create a scholarly article or articles as part of the dissertation writing process, think about the differences between a chapter and an article, and look ahead to how the dissertation might become a first monograph. 
 

*Please note that we are experimenting this semester with doing away with the workload associated with officially cross-listing courses since the majority of our students have tended to register for courses through their home departments.

Instead we have constructed the lists below to underscore which courses will fulfill which requirements. We welcome your suggestions about this shift in policy.*
