American Studies students in Tulsa and Stillwater have a variety of course options available for Spring 2018. Visit the Course Offerings page, or download the Stillwater and Tulsa flyers to get the complete list of what’s available where. Informational flyers for individual courses are available from the Course Offerings Page.
For Stillwater-based students I would highly recommend AMST3950 Intro to Asian American Studies (DH) and Dr. Rachel Jackson’s AMST 3683 Intro to Digital Humanities course which will involve a digital story-telling project with Iowa tribal elders. Dr. Louise Siddons will also be offering her popular ART 4763 Native American Arts and Material Culture course, which can be substituted for AMST 3673 on the AMST degree sheet.
In Tulsa, I would HIGHLY recommend AMST3723 Cultural History of American Sports with OSU AMST grad and now PhD History candidate Jake Cornwell, an expert on local baseball and hot rod cultures, or Dr. Tom Jorsch’s AMST 4910 Period Seminar on The Gilded Age, which will examine the first “Gilded Age” in the 1890s and draw comparisons to today, which many people describe as a “new Gilded Age.” And, of course, Dr. Gray’s AMST4973 Senior Seminar in American Studies will be offered for seniors looking to finish off that capstone research project.
NEED ADVICE? I (Dr. Takacs) will have drop-in office hours on Thursday, November 1 from 3-4:30 in Main Hall 2215 on the OSU Tulsa campus for those who have questions about course offerings or degree requirements. Feel free to stop by!
