188-017 WBIS: Creating Identity

188-017 WBIS: Creating Identity
Instructor: Karl Boehler
Description:
Creating Identity will look at the many ways that Americans create images of themselves: as individuals, as families, and even as nations. By looking at a wide variety of topics—from sports teams to King Phillip's War—we will explore how language and images are used to manufacture a self, an identifiable ego that is different from, and needs to be protected from, other identifiable selves.
