ASC 001U.S. Immigration Policy and the Future

of the Nation

Instructor: Patricia Fernandez-Kelly

Description/Objective: In this course we give cursory attention to a) the history of immigration to the United States with special attention to the relationship between labor flows and economic development. b) We then investigate changes in immigration policy in the latter part of the 20th Century noting fluctuations related to the implementation of the North American Free Trade Agreement. c) In the third part of this course we give a detailed account of the effects resulting from the incorporation of the U.S. Immigration Service into the Department of Homeland Security after the 9/11 assault on New York and Washington. d) Finally, on the basis of empirical research we review common misconceptions about immigration, the effects of authorized and unauthorized migration on national sovereignty and identity, and the prospects of immigrants living under a cloud of suspicion.

Professor(s): Eddie S. Glaude

Our aim is to keep in view the significance of the Black Power era for understanding the changing role and place of black religion in black public life.

AAS 329 /ENG 415 Chinatown USA
Professor(s): Anne A. Cheng

Description/Objectives: This course registers the tension between the domestic and the foreign that has long since haunted the ideal of American integration. We will look at the construction of "Chinatown" -- as historic reality, geographic formation, cultural fantasy, even architectural innovation -- in the making of the American nationalism. We will study novels, plays, films, and photography that focus on or use Chinatown as a central backdrop in ways that highlight the complex relationship between material history and social imagination when it comes to how America incorporates (or fails to digest) its racial or immigrant.

AAS 411 /ART 471 Art, Apartheid, and South Africa
Professor(s): Chika Okeke-Agulu

Description/Objectives: Apartheid, the political doctrine of separation of races in South Africa (1948-1990), dominated the (South) African political discourse in the second half of the 20th century. While it lasted, art and visual cultures were marshaled in the defense and contestation of its ideologies. Since the end of Apartheid, artists, filmmakers, dramatists, and scholars continue to reexamine the legacies of Apartheid, and the social, philosophical, and political conditions of non-racialized South Africa. Course readings examine issues of race, nationalism and politics, art and visual culture, and social memory in South Africa.

ARC 203 Introduction to Architectural Thinking
Professor(s): Sarah M. Whiting

Description/Objectives: The objective of this course is to provide a broad overview of the discipline of architecture: its history, theories, methodologies; its manners of thinking and working. Rather than a chronological survey, the course will be organized thematically, with examples drawn from a range of historical periods as well as contemporary practice. Through lectures and readings every student will acquire a working knowledge of key texts, buildings and architectural concepts.

Architectural thinking will be explored thematically by focusing upon a series of significant debates (historical and contemporary) about tectonics, program, representation, and urbanism. Debates will include history versus utopia, handcrafted versus machine made, generic versus iconic, form versus program, drawing versus scripting, and image versus surface, among others.

The visual arts will be seen to include not only painting and sculpture, but also photography, cinema, fashion, advertisement and television.
This year the lectures are divided into five sections: dance and theatre; painting; sculpture; photography; film and multi-media art.
