AMST 464 - Narratives of Contemporary U.S. Immigration

(3.00)
This course is a study of immigrant narratives from recent decades primarily through film and literature. New groups arriving to the U.S. long have employed narrative forms to establish recognition in America. In this course we analyze how cultural representations help immigrant groups define an ethnic American identity. In contrast to historical or political tracts, we will investigate what these longer narrative forms offer immigrant groups in their efforts to establish an American cultural identity. Recommended Preparation Six credits in American Studies courses, 3 at the upper-level
