Title

Feeling Whose Pain? Exploring the Clinton '90s

Description

David F. Putnam Science Center, Room 126
Feeling Whose Pain maps American culture during the 1990s by surveying 'Clinton's America'. Three research papers explore a collage of cultural contradictions and political paradoxes defining the moment. Presented in a round table format, students from the American Studies senior seminar discuss their research projects on the HIV/AIDS pandemic in Black America, the "conspiracy theory phenomena," and the Barbie doll's place in the American cultural imagination. Tracing major frames for discussing the Clinton era, including Neoliberalism, postmodernity (late capitalism), and race relations, students' works treat a stream of cultural events from the Rodney King Rebellion of 1992 to the Seattle G7 protests.
