Merges the Biological Sciences and Health & General Science Collections together into a single multidisciplinary collection; extraordinary depth in the field sciences and coverage in medicine, nursing, epidemiology, and public health.
Covers literature, film, popular culture, photography, and the visual arts. Attention is also given to history, the social sciences, and politics, particularly insofar as these fields impact on cultural texts.
This volume explores the convergences and divergences of American studies today and, more specifically, investigates how this discipline might be approached. Drawing on a wide range of perspectives, the essays brought together here address concerns related to the role and capacity of American studies in the early 21st century, amidst alarming circumstances of environmental, economic, and educational degradation in a world characterized by a transnational flux of people, money, and cultures.
The Department of Social Sciences is a multi-disciplinary department consisting of degree programs in criminal justice (law enforcement and corrections), global studies, history, political science, public administration, social science education, and sociology.
