According to ideals of American exceptionalism, we live in a classless society. But according to mounting evidence, twenty-first-century America is a class-bound society with historic, widening gulfs—economic, social, educational, & cultural—between upper & lower strata. What does class look like in America? Where does it play out, with whom? How is it created & perpetuated, with what effects? Through readings, discussion, & audiovisual materials, this seminar examines class on the ground, in various sites & contexts: media; the environment; popular music; sexuality & friendship; the workplace; food, bodies, & health; preschool, high school, & university education; rural & urban spaces. Throughout our discussions & written work we will consider the roles of gender, race, taste, affect, & history. Seminar participants will extend the range of class topics through final Powerpoint presentations.
