Explorations in Arts and Humanities; Who Belongs? Practices of Citizenship in U.S. Democracy
first semester freshmen in the College of Arts and Humanities. What does it mean to be a citizen? What are the rights and obligations of citizens in a democracy? Who grants these rights and obligations? This class will explore these questions by playing a historical simulation game, reading foundational primary texts from U.S. history and contemporary politics, and observing and participating in the College Park community. We will engage with history, philosophy, literature, and public rhetoric, and students will practice multiple modes of inquiry including role-play, debate, close reading, participant observation, and public writing.
