This course will examine the social significance, political implications, cultural meanings and racial consequences of the rise, election and governing of President Barack Obama.

We will also probe the political dimensions of Obama’s rise as a politician and his election and governance as president. We will also engage the cultural meanings of Obama’s political journey and personal sojourn, and explore their impact on the broader American society.
