American Studies

American Studies is the graduate home for cutting edge work that crosses the humanities and social sciences. At the turn of the twenty-first century, this field provides a capacious site for the study of gender, religion, race, and related vectors of culture in the Americas, understood broadly and transnationally. Applying cultural and social thought to such matters as citizenship, democracy, community, poverty and prosperity, politics, popular culture, and identity in this region makes American Studies an intellectually sophisticated yet practical course of graduate study, one that can also be combined with community-based work, bringing theory and praxis together.
