CSRE 114: Imagining the American Frontier in Popular Culture and Fiction. (AMSTUD 114, FEMGEN 114A)

Stories of the frontier pervade our cultural texts and linger in our imaginations. This course focuses on the continued fascination with the American West and frontier narratives as source material for a wide range of popular culture texts and fiction. From Oregon Trail to Joss Whedon's Firefly and from Quentin Tarantino to Janelle Monáe, this course draws from a wide range of genres and formats including novels, short stories, films, serialized television, board games, video games, and experimental hypertext fiction. Putting historical primary sources in conversation with contemporary cultural texts, students will examine how the entwined and sometimes conflicting process of history- and memory-making has continued to build frontier imaginaries in the present.

CSRE 114C: America Never was America to me: Race and Equity in US Public Schools (AFRICAAM 114C, EDUC 114C, EDUC 314C)

This cross-disciplinary course will use the 10-part docu-series "America to Me" to discuss the complexities of race and equity in US schools. The series follows a year in the life of a racially diverse, well-resourced high school outside Chicago, providing an in-depth look at the effects of race, equity, culture and privilege on educational opportunities, and offers insights into the teenage search for personal identity in today's climate. Two of the people featured in the series will be a part of the class, and after screening each episode, a Stanford professor will give a short talk inspired by the content of that episode. The talks will span several disciplines and theoretical perspectives, including Critical Race Theory, History, Psychology, Youth Development, Film Studies, Linguistics, and Teacher Education. Following each talk, students will engage in critical discussion around race and equity in education. Episode 10 will air during Final Exam week, but there will be no final exam.
