Institution: Pitzer

Description: This course will examine individualist discourses and alternatives to them (e.g., populist, religious, ethnic/racial identity, socialist, New Age) in the United States. We will study how these discourses have been used in the past and present by elites and average citizens, including their key words, metaphors, rhetorical styles and unspoken assumptions. The focus of the class will be original research projects examining the ways these discourses are used in discussions of politics and public policy.
