Welcome to the new semester!

Welcome, one and all, to another exciting semester in American Studies. If you haven’t yet discovered the perfect course, here is the list of course offerings for Fall on both campuses. We hope to see you in our classes come Monday!

A note about the TV and American Society course: it is listed as a “hybrid” course, but all this means is that the screening lab will take place outside of the regular class time. In other words, I’m going to ask you to watch everything from The Honeymooners to Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along-Blog on your own time and then report back. I’ve mostly picked programs that are accessible for free online, or available in the OSUT library, but if you have a subscription to Netflix, Hulu, and/or Amazon Prime it might come in handy. Screenings will range from 1-2 hours per week, but should be fun!

Fulbright information sessions will be held very early in the semester. Here’s the info per Dale Lightfoot who runs the sessions:

Fulbrights are fully-funded grants to teach English or pursue your studies or research interests abroad.

Information sessions for 2019-2020 student Fulbright programs will be held on the Stillwater campus August 22, 23, and 24 (see flyer for details regarding dates and rooms).

The online application for the 2019-2020 Fulbright U.S. Student Program is open.  The campus deadline (for completed applications and campus review) will be mid-September.

Alas, there are no planned sessions for the Tulsa campus. I’m working on getting them over here in future. Happy first week!
