AMST 357A Special Topics in Communications, Media,                3 credits
          and the Arts Killer Fictions:                     
          Representations of Serial Crime in                
          Fiction,Film and TV                               

          Grade   Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  course
          traces  the  emergence  of  crime  stories
          featuring   serial  killers  in  film  and
          fiction,and   explores   the  relationship
          between   American  culture  and  the  two
          competing narratives of detection featured
          in these stories: profiling and forensics.
          It  examines the cultural functions served
          by  the profiler and forensics narratives,
          with  particular attention to  the ways in
          which  their representations  of the Other
          mediate our anxieties about the postmodern
          world,        multiculturalism,        and
          globalization.

AMST 357B Special Topics in Communications, Media,                3 credits
          and the Arts The Road Movie:                      
          Representations of Mobility in American           

          Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  Mobility  and
          travel  are  central  to  the  meanings of
          American   culture  and  history.  America
          encompasses  many narratives  of mobility,
          such  as  a  melting pot  of immigrants, a
          classless   society   of  upwardly  mobile
          individuals, the land of the frontier, and
          the  Wild  West.   The  road  serves  as a
          central  symbol  of  these  narratives and
          their  complex and contradictory meanings.
          The   class   explores   the   complicated
          representations  of  America found  in the
          road  and  the  road movie.   The American
          Studies      methods      of      material
          culture/cultural  landscape analysis, film
          analysis,  and  critical  thinking/writing
          are   used   to   explore  the  films  and
          readings.  For  more  information  contact
