- Cultural Studies
This course involves turning ourselves and our everyday practices into objects of investigation, thinking critically about the ways we may be implicated in the processes of militarization and practices of Empire, and engaging in discussions about alternatives and possibilities for constructive and creative resistance. While we will take up historical studies in and around World Wars I and II, Korea, Vietnam and the first Gulf War, we will be particularly attentive to our contemporary cultural moment, and how militarization works, through popular culture, legal reform, news coverage, federal security and domestic policy, to shape things like gender, sexuality, race, nation, citizenship, care, memory and mourning.
