Additional Details:

Through the novels, poems, and films we'll take up in this course, we'll take a
comparative look at various visions of America that have flashed up from those
parts less recognized. This "America" might be the name of a nation or an empire,
of a destination or a point of departure, but it will never be less than a site of
struggle.

Outside the classroom, the struggle goes on, so we'll do our best to keep up.
