This course interrogates cultural products from Germany and the U.S. (novels, graphic narratives, tv and film, advertising images) to explore the cultural imaginaries through which people understand themselves, their compatriots, and the incoming migrants to the geopolitical regions in which they live. In asking what it might take to create racial and ethnic justice in our time, we look at the diversity of group formation, attend to conflicting claims to national belonging, and debate theoretical perspectives on race and ethnicity.
