Anotace - angličtina
The focus and goal of this course it to introduce students to the diverse views and ideas about freedom, subjugation, and hegemony as they developed within the American society throughout its history, from the initial contact to the present. The aim of the course is not to present a comprehensive chronological narrative, rather, it will concentrate on pivotal moments and events that will allow students to examine the developing meanings and definitions of freedom to people from different walks of life at different times. The students will examine the role and intersections of class, race, and gender relations in formulating these ideas within the context of domestic and internationals relations.
