Welcome to the Minor in American
Culture and Difference
American Culture and Difference* is an interdisciplinary minor that offers students a critical perspective on the diversity of "American Culture." Students consider ways in which music, film advertisements, folklore, literature, television, and art shape daily life in the United States, form cultural and national identity, construct racial and ethnic identity, and create a sense of "high" and "low" culture.
The minor re-examines representations of mainstream American culture and the productions of alternative and oppositional cultures, highlighting the experiences and struggles of communities that have historically been marginalized because of their class, gender, racial or sexual identities. Put simply, American Culture and Difference emphasizes diversity as a defining element of American culture.
