General Education Course: Humanities-English Literature, Global and Cultural Awareness
Prerequisite(s): ENGL 111 - English Composition I .
This course explores the connections between ethnic identity and literature/culture in the United States.

Students will explore themes such as ethnic and racial stereotypes, ethnicity and gender, assimilation versus cultural heritage and memory, translating experiences into a new culture and language, responses to myths about immigration and the “American Dream.”
