AMST 2770

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2017-2018.

This team-taught course uses literature and popular culture, alongside literary, social, and cultural theory to consider how people from different cultures encounter and experience each other. The course explores travel from multiple perspectives, the concept of dark tourism, and the cultural industry of racial representation. Designed for the general student population, the course specifically appeals to students traveling abroad, or who in the future will work with diverse communities (for example, students with interests in medicine, law, labor, government, business, the hospitality industry, or in the fields of gender, queer, or ethnic studies). The course serves as an introduction to the critical inquiries and scholarly fields of the English department.
