COLT 57 (INT17): Special Topics: Culture, Place, and Identity

This course considers the role of culture and identity, migration, evolution of language, gender, race, and class issues, and studies the diverse cultural and artistic productions (literary, cinematic, musical, multi-media) that exemplify the tensions and negotiations between cultures and people.

Migration Stories  (Identical to International Studies 17 & Film and Media Studies 47)

With over 50 million displaced people today, migration is one of the most compelling problems of our time.  Filmic and literary representations of migration focus on borders, different types of migrants, and their border crossing experiences.  We will study migration from Latin America to the U.S.; from Africa and Eastern Europe to Western Europe; and internal migration within these countries.  We will also analyze how Hollywood cinema itself creates images and values that drive migration.  (INT/CI)
