HIST367 - PHILADELPHIA 1700-2000

Description: 
This course will trace and explore the important history and role of Philadelphia in the founding of the United States from the pre-colonial era to the present. It will not be simply a celebration of elite figures and historical events and sites around the city, but an in-depth examination of the social, cultural, and political events that shaped a city and a nation as well as an evaluation of how we view this history today. While the course focuses on Philadelphia, we will also make connections to the larger history of Pennsylvania, the Delaware Valley, and the Middle Atlantic region in general. Since Penn is situated near many important historical sites in the city, you will also be expected to go on multiple field trips.
