HIST 2400 Picturing Race and Gender

4 semester hours

This course explores the manner in which various peoples, including African Americans, Asian Pacific Americans, Latina/o Americans, Native Americans, and white Americans, have been portrayed and, in turn, have portrayed themselves through historical time space. It uses a wide variety of cultural productions, including artworks, political cartoons, museum exhibits, television and film, photographs, and advertisements, from the nineteenth to twenty-first centuries to critically analyzing questions concerning cultural hybridity, biculturalism, evolving definitions of Amerianness, the creation of gender-role expectations, inter-ethnic exchanges, and the establishment of socioeconomic conventions.

University Core fulfilled: Foundations: Studies in American Diversity.
