ENGL 1912: America in Crisis

3 CreditsFreshman SeminarOnline AvailableRace, Power, and Justice in the United States

America has a long history of injustice that lives on today in diverse forms. This course focuses on current crises in our economy, society, and (presumably democratic) government. We will analyze and try to solve some of the pressing questions. How did we end up with the largest wage and wealth disparities in the developed world? Why are low-income and even middle-income families struggling to make ends meet? Why did our K-12 education system, once in first place, drop behind education in all developed nations? Why does our healthcare system cost more yet provide less access and quality than systems elsewhere? In short, what forces created the gulf between the lived experiences of ordinary Americans and the high ideals articulated in the US Constitution?
