HIS 361 Race and Graphic Narrative in the Post-War United States, 3 credits

This course examines the representation of race and ethnicity in the United States from the end of World War II though today. Through the examination of a variety of graphic formats (narratives, films, television, etc.), students will deepen their knowledge of how race and ethnicity have been represented and analyze the strengths and weaknesses of those representations, through the use of primary and secondary evidence. Students will also draw connections between these texts and contemporary U.S. culture and society. May not be taken if the student has already completed ENG 361.

Prerequisite: Completion of the History/Political Science Core.
