This course will introduce students to a wide variety of approaches to studying how globalization has transformed American culture, as well as the ways in which American culture has circulated globally. As the dominant global power through much of the twentieth century, the United States has been particularly influential in shaping processes of globalization, and American culture has circulated widely and though multiple processes; from Hollywood films, to government sponsored cultural and sports programs and military interventions, to corporate and private initiatives. We will examine how American culture has interacted with nations and cultures abroad. A primary goal of the course is to introduce students to a wide variety of perspectives on globalization. Another goal is to explore multiple research methods for approaching topics of globalization. We will critically examine and use the web as an important tool for our investigations along with on-line and traditional archival collections.
