Notes
This First Year Seminar is being offered in conjunction with Dawg Days: Abroad. It is open to any student accepted into the program and includes travel outside the United States to England. -- American Orientalism will introduce students to the concept of Orientalism through the lens of the United States's changing relationship with and representations of the Middle East since the late 19th century. Particular emphasis will be placed on the ways in which gender, sexuality, race, nation, class, and religion intersect in U.S. cultural productions of the Middle East. Throughout the semester, students will interact with a variety of cultural texts, including art, literature, film, and the news to identify and assess U.S. Orientalism.
