Expanded Course Description
This course surveys the history of the United States from roughly the 1890s through the 1980s and beyond, with a focus on social, cultural, and political history. We will follow three major themes that weave their way throughout the modern era: (1) progressivism in American political and social thought, (2) the history of social movements, such as the labor, civil rights, feminist, environmental, and conservative movements, and (3) the rise of the United States as a world power. We will pay particular attention to the experiences of African Americans and Latino(a)s, as well as European Americans, and explore the roles of race, class, gender, ethnicity, and environment in the American experience. Finally, we will emphasize the ways that people have changed history through individual and collective action. This course meets the criteria for multicultural courses because it considers African Americans, Latinos, and European Americans in historical and comparative perspectives. The study of history involves more than the simple mastery of facts. Historians interpret facts and give them meaning, and those interpretations change over time as society and its concerns change and as new evidence come to light. I will emphasize the interpretative nature of history and encourage you to "think historically," to try to see the past through the eyes of those who lived it. This course meets the group satisfying requirements for the social sciences because of its emphasis on broad patterns of history.
