ENGL 208 American Popular and Mass Cultures

An introduction to the methodologies of studying American cultures, with a special focus on popular and mass cultures. Particular course emphasis will be determined by the individual instructor, but topics will stress the multiplicity of American cultures. While literary works will make up the majority of the class texts, the course will utilize an interdisciplinary approach integrating materials from fields such as history, anthropology, women's studies, ethnic studies, geography, sociology, music, and art.
