Evolution of Work in America

Evolution of Work in America: Industrial Revolution through Post-Industrial Society and Beyond
From farm to factory to office to virtual, work in the United States has dramatically changed since the turn of the last century. In this course we will examine the evolution of work and the struggle of unions, governments, workers, and employers who shape and are shaped by these changes. We will also assess forces framing the work of tomorrow. Through books such as Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, David Foster Wallace’s The Pale King, movies such as Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times and episodes of The Office, we will assess both the impact of work on culture and culture’s impact on work.

Asian Americans and the Cinema

Asian Americans and the Cinema
In this course we will examine Asian American cinematic representations, from classic Hollywood to contemporary independent Asian American films. We will explore how Asian Americans have been depicted in mainstream films as well as how Asian Americans are framing themselves through independent films. We will approach the topic both chronologically and thematically as well as examine a number of cinematic genres and film forms, with films ranging from the Charlie Chan detective series (1920s-40s) to the musical Flower Drum Song (1961), the experimental Chan Is Missing (1982), and the documentary Seeking Asian Female (2013). Key issues will include: stereotypes of Asian Americans in classic Hollywood cinema; oppositional practices of Asian American independent films; intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality; and documenting selves and history through documentaries.
