HIN 5312-15: Cultura Norteamericana, Dr. Jason Kendall Moore, Universidad de Playa
Ancha, Campus San Felipe, Primer Semestre 2016

DESCRIPTION
This course analyzes the United States’ self-perceptions and attitudes toward the rest of
the world in which many are unreceptive to its form of democracy and capitalism. The
nation’s ideals coexist with a host of contradictions at home and abroad, yet for many it
remains a beacon of hope.
GENERAL OBJECTIVES
To analyze the effect of the attacks of 11 September 2001 on US national identity and
multicultural ideals; to improve students’ listening comprehension through lectures and the
use of audiovisual material, and their fluency through in-class presentations based on
social and political essays from The American Conservative.
SPECIFIC OBJECTIVES
To evaluate the basis of pro- and anti-Yankee sentiment in the Middle East and Latin
American, specifically as related to the Palestine dispute and the former dictatorship in
Chile; to identify disparities between the United States’ principles and its intervention
around the planet, as recognized by many of its own citizens.
CONTENTS
The first unit of the course addresses US values and identity; the second, US policy
toward the Palestinian dispute; and the third, US covert operations in Chile during the
Allende era.
EVALUATION
Three written tests (20% each) and two oral presentations (20% each).
