INST 1502 - Situated Selves

Hours: 4
These courses will explore identity in a rich range of local and global contexts. Classes may center on interpersonal identities, engaging the intricacies of love, family, or friendship. They may examine social categories of identity—gender, sexuality, race, class, ethnicity, age, nation, and more—or investigate cultural constructions of difference. Or they may examine political identities, studying identity in national and transnational frameworks. Subtopics may include “Identity and Intimacy,” “Criminal Identities,” “The Stranger,” “Disaster Narratives,” “Identity and Human Rights,” “Our Monsters, Our Selves,” or “How Sports Explains Us All.” Students will read novels, plays, memoirs, essays, poems, or short stories. Courses will nurture expository, reflective, persuasive, imaginative, and autobiographical writing skills, including at least two thesis essays.
