ANTH 125 PZ - U.S. Social and Immigration Discourses


How do Americans arrive at their beliefs about public policy? We will analyze interviews with diverse Americans (African American, European, American, and Mexican American men and women from different backgrounds) about such issues as national health insurance, welfare, and immigration. What ideologies have affected the way Americans talk about these issues? How are people’s views on these issues related to their personal identities? We’ll read the work of other scholars on Americans’ social policies views, but our focus in this seminar will be learning how to analyze what people say to uncover implicit and possibly conflicting cultural assumptions, ideologies, and identities. Seminar, limited enrollment.
