LASS314 Race,Class and the American Dream 3cr


How do race and class operate not just in categorizing people, but in maintaining and reproducing the socio- economic life and in
shaping common experience of history and present. We will focus on African Americans and white Americans and discuss what race means, and what class means – historically, culturally, and economically – in the context of the American dream.  6 cinematic representations  will serve
us as prompts to examine in depth selected historical themes, from the Civil War to the
present.
