An interdisciplinary approach to understanding the diverse peoples, societies, institutions, and cultures of the United States (often called “America”) past and present. SSU’s program is marked by a focus on: cultural diversity and identity formation; “America” and “Americans” as part of a global system; structural inequality; social justice; place-making and power. Methods, materials and approaches from the social sciences, arts and humanities aim to complicate any simple understanding of “America” or “Americans.”
