HIST610 - TOPICS IN AMERICAN HIST: 20C US HISTORIOGRAPHY

Description: 
This seminar introduces graduate students to major themes, significant debates, and recent research in U.S. history from the late nineteenth to the late twentieth century. The course will range over a number of fields of history, among them, American political development, gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, the U.S. in the world, the natural and built environment, cultural and intellectual life, and social movements. Each class will focus on a common reading (typically a book or group of articles); students will be expected to read some of the recommended readings, including primary sources, as well. My aim is to increase your knowledge of U.S. historiography, help you understand the social, political, and intellectual developments that have shaped it, hone your critical abilities, and develop the self-awareness you need as an historian. **THIS CLASS WILL MEET IN PROFESSOR PEISS' OFFICE, COLL 215D.**
