Cultural Studies of the Americas

This concentration includes the study of cultural productions - e.g. art, film, television, literature - and the major theoretical and ideological trends of cultural studies in the Americas. This concentration takes a hemispheric or Inter-American approach to the study of cultural productions, taking into account the impact of social, economic, and political exchanges on the circulation of culture across the hemisphere. Courses in this concentration explore issues relating to the representation of transnational migration, race, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, class, and indigeneity.
