As part and parcel to American Culture Studies’ continued efforts to bring the vibrancy of our community to the web, the Media Archive will include a growing body of audio and visual material. Culled from interviews with visiting scholars, recordings of AMCS events hosted throughout the semester, and features from program initiatives, the Media Archive rounds out amcs.wustl’s digital presence. Our aim is to offer site visitors a way to hear and see community inquire about and debate issues critical to American Life.
Every summer, AMCS travels to a new location to explore fundamental questions of national identity and meaning through the study of the interdependent relationship between culture and place. By visiting landmarks, historic sites, museums, memorials etc. -- sites best understood through direct engagement with consideration of their rich material, historical, political, and social meanings -- students become in-the-field observers and learn from local experts and faculty.
