Demirjian, Richard

Online course in Sakai. $100 online course fee. Go to http://sakai.rutgers.edu. In this seminar-style course we will consider the ongoing memory of the American Civil War. Over 150 since its eruption, this seminal national moment continues to stand as the crossroads of our history. The sacrifice, suffering, and glory engendered by this fratricidal conflict capture the imagination of millions as evidenced by the millions of visitors to national parks, the innumerable published works, and legions of historical re-enactors which keep its memory alive. The Civil War defined and re-defined questions of federal and state authority, slavery and freedom, the fate of western lands, medical science, and even taxation. Yet in spite of all the change it wrought, there are those today who would suggest that it is still, in some ways, being fought. This course will examine the ways that Americans have searched for meaning in their Civil War, and how they have remembered it even re-fought its underlying battles in their culture. There will be no exams in this course. Students will be evaluated upon two criteria: 1) a series of short papers addressing a host of assigned readings and films and 2) informed class participation.

The Cold War, an era characterized by the superpower standoff between the United States and the former Soviet Union, provides a fruitful subject for cultural analysis. The focus of our exploration of this era will be the social and cultural changes wrought by atomic weapons and the threat of Communist expansion both abroad and at home. Such phenomena as television, suburbia, science fiction, rock and roll, the Civil Rights movement and the counter-culture are just a few of the trends and processes that emerged during these years. There will be no exams in this course. Students will be evaluated upon two criteria: 1) a series of short reaction papers and book reviews addressing essays and novels from, or about, the period and 2) class performance/participation. We will also have a lot of fun examining and discussing films, television programs, and commercial ads from the period which serve as rich primary source documents of how Americans processed the changing and threatening world around them.

Although gender variant individuals have been part of communities for as long as we have recorded history, transgender issues have come to the forefront of US academic and popular culture over the last decade. Today, disciplines as diverse as medicine, political science, and education are exploring the ways that transgender individuals experience life, interact with society, and utilize social services. The field of transgender studies has emerged as a response to both increased public awareness of gender variant individuals and an evolving discourse around gender identity. Transgender studies pulls from diverse disciplines to create an interdisciplinary field that explores how sex and gender intersect with identity and culture. This course will provide an introduction to transgender studies. It will examine historical and contemporary complexities of identity, embodiment, language, and activism, with a focus on answering: who transgender people are; what transgender studies is; how transgender studies differs from other forms of scholarship; and, how various disciplines have added to our understanding of transgender individuals and the intersections of sex and gender. To answer these questions, we will explore the historical, medical, political, sociological, criminological, visual, and legal issues surrounding transgender and gender variant existence.
