AMST2602 - Regionalism and American Culture

Semester 2, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Sarah Gleeson-White

Description

This unit takes as its focus the different regions of the United States and explores their representation in a variety of texts, including visual and prose texts. We consider the important ideological and cultural work that regions perform in relation to the nation. We also examine the processes of regionalisation that produce and sustain regions, as well as the ways in which they are transformed by the processes of modernity, migration and globalisation.
