Trump 101

Instructor(s): William Mazzarella and Kaushik Sunder Rajan
Spring 2017

In spring 2017, William Mazzarella and Kaushik Sunder Rajan co-convened a major undergraduate teaching initiative under the 3CT banner: the college course Trump 101. Combining a weekly series of stand-alone lectures with the continuity of discussion sections led by graduate students, the course mobilized the pedagogical inputs of several members of 3CT (including Lauren Berlant, Moishe Postone, Lisa Wedeen and Joe Masco) and put them into conversation with colleagues from elsewhere on campus. As a foreshadowing of the kinds of teaching initiatives that 3CT intends to develop, the course embodied signature 3CT values: critical interdisciplinarity in the service of theorizing the present.
