This seminar serves as an introduction to doctoral study in the Department of American Culture. We will investigate the genesis and development of the capacious and eclectic field of American Studies, and consider its present state. Taking on that project also entails exploring the theoretical frameworks and bodies of research that have shaped interdisciplinary scholarship in American Studies, including Marxism, cultural studies, and race, class, gender and sexuality studies. Our topic is American Studies, plus—we are also concerned with its influences, critiques of the field, and adjacent enterprises of knowledge-making. We will also ask ourselves what American Studies might become in the future.
