ENG 257 - The American Working Class in Fiction and Non-Fiction
Using the concept of the "American Dream" to examine work, class, and social mobility, students will learn to appreciate the power of class in shaping individual lives and our culture. There is a prevailing belief in America that we are a "classless" society, but this course interrogates this concept. Through critical examination of a variety of works of fiction and non-fiction, students will explore ways that the inequalities of class, ethnicity, race, and gender interrelate to sustain the power and interests of economic elites.
