American Studies explores the United States from distinct but inter-related viewpoints. You will learn about the politics, culture, and history of the world’s last superpower. As well as celebrating the country, you will interrogate and critique American mythologies.
Our academics are at the cutting edge of research on topics such as Native American history, the CIA, President Barack Obama, the respective political philosophies of Dr. Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, the black freedom movement, early American newspaper culture, and the literature of the US South.
You will explore areas including:
• American film, journalism, literature, and music
• Histories of race, colonialism and oppression
• The frontier at home and abroad in the context of politics and foreign relations
• Issues of ethnicity, gender, and class
