Course Description

This course examines the close encounters and contact zones that marked American continental and overseas expansionism from the early nineteenth-century to the present. We will focus on histories and theories of sexuality as these theories pertain to the raise of United States national identity and empire, and to U.S. relations to other territories, nations, and empires. Students interested in any aspect of colonialism, foreign relations, race, immigration and diaspora studies, and gender and sexuality, are welcome. Students may count this class as either research or reading. Papers for research credit should be based around interpretation of appropriate primary source material. GRADUATE STANDING REQUIRED. COURSE NUMBER MAY BE REPEATED FOR CREDIT WHEN THE TOPICS VARY. WGS 393 AND W S 393 MAY NOT BOTH BE COUNTED. MEETS WITH HIS 389.
