CULTURE AND THE UNCONSCIOUS

[Instructor]
Mukesh K. Williams

[Course Guide]

Sub Title:

American History, Culture and Foreign Policy

Course Description:

After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 the United States emerged as the most important nation in the world. Every nation has some kind of relationship with the United States, which is either profitable or unprofitable. No nation can ignore the United States or fail to understand American history, culture and foreign policy. Most nations therefore include American Studies within their academic, bureaucratic and administrative orientation. Since the nineteenth century nation states especially America have tired to define key words and ideas relating to freedom, welfare, civil rights, sovereignty, representation, democracy and religion to create a composite intellectual and political culture. The American Studies Program will introduce students to the inter-disciplinary study of American history, culture and foreign policy and help them to understand how Americans and non-Americans think about America.
