COMPSTD 7380: Theorizing (the) America(s) (30406)
TR 11:10-1:55, Theresa Delgadillo, Journalism Building 0387
This seminar will investigate some of the key questions facing Ethnic, American, and Latin America Studies today in conceptualizing and enacting “the Americas” in scholarship, curriculum, and public sphere work. Students will study theoretical and cultural constructions of “nation,” “America,” “Latin America,” and “Americas,” considering these alongside critical readings that address the terms through which “America” and “the Americas” takes shape, such as citizenship, empire, nationalism, sexuality, race, ethnicity, consumer, class, migration, immigration, diaspora, globalization. Our study will require us to read across disciplines and in doing so, to attend to the means by which knowledge is produced in disciplinary and trans-disciplinary contexts. Assignments include significant reading, engaged critical discussion, collaboration on class presentations, and a research paper. Possible readings: Imagined Communities by Benedict Anderson (1983), Manifesting America by Mark Rifkin (2009), Imagined Globalizaton by Nestor Garcia Canclini (2014), Migrating to the Movies by Jacqueline Najuma Stewart (2005), When Biometrics Fail by Shoshana Amielle Magnet (2011), Brother, I'm Dying by Edwidge Danticat (2008), Trans-Americanity: Subaltern Modernities, Global Coloniality, and the Cultures of Greater Mexico by José David Saldívar.
