地域文化論(アメリカ)(2007春学期)

【シラバス】

Sub Title:

MULTICLULTURAL HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES

Course Description:

One in three Americans is now a member of a minority group. The heated national debate on how government should respond to illegal immigration reveals the country’s anxiety about the changing face of America. Yet the United States has always been multiracial/multicultural and indeed shaped by the presence of diverse groups. The objective of this course is to promote the student’s understanding of American history and culture by exploring the diverse experiences of these “minorities” in the United States. The approach is primarily historical and assumes that the culture we describe as American derives its special characteristics from the presence of multiracial/ multicultural Americans. Emphasis will be placed on contemporary public issues as well as on historical events. We will examine specifically the continuities and changes in the lives of Native Americans, African Americans, Japanese Americans, and Mexican Americans, and see how their experiences relate to the history of the United States. By means of discussion, lectures, reading, writing, and class presentation, this course will provide new insights and perspectives into American history and culture.
