Larry Estrada's Class

American Cultural Studies

What we do:

  • Explore the formation of identities and societies through issues such as race/ ethnicity, social and cultural theory, social economic class, gender and sexual orientation.
  • Concentrate on the Americanization process and American cultural institutions and/or American cultural values.
  • Examine and question the concepts of privilege, silence and voice.
  • Encourage students to become critical thinkers who will be well prepared to work for social change.
  • Cross the disciplines of Social Sciences with Humanities to prepare students for advanced study in law, domestic social services, public service, government service, education or continuing study of Ethnic Studies and other social sciences at the graduate level.
