This course investigates both practical and theoretical issues relevant for American Studies in and outside the academy. The class offers students strategic approaches to areas critical for successful careers, areas such as planning long term research, writing grant applications, conference planning, and honing classroom teaching skills. As well, we explore pertinent issues that influence American Studies today: the university system, public culture, and professionalism. The course features the regular participation of guests from American Studies and outside the program. The course is open only to American Studies graduate students, preferably nearing their comprehensive exams.
