APST 620 - New Perspectives in Appalachian Studies

Credits: (3)
Prerequisites: APST 610  or instructor permission.
Drawing from various postmodern theories and critiques, the course will explore tensions and debates that exist in Appalachian Studies. Students will evaluate how scholars avoid essentialism and recognize diversity while still maintaining a regional disciplinary focus. The course will employ comparative analyses, tools of historiography, and contemporary theoretical lenses for students to come to an understanding of Appalachia and Appalachian Studies in this global 21st century.
