HIST 2010 - Making the United States: Cultures in Conflict through the Civil War Era (CZ or HF)


(3) Credit Hours

This course surveys American history from the initial peopling of the continent by indigenous people, Europeans, and Africans through the U.S. Civil War era with special attention to the peoples, ideas, and cultures that created the United States. The course examines how race, class, and gender, as well as migration and immigration influenced the country’s social, cultural, and political development. Through the lens of first-hand testimonies and a wide range of different written and audio-visual documents, the course investigates how people contested and redefined notions of equality, rights, and citizenship over time. Students will leave the course with a deeper understanding of the narratives that Americans tell about the nation in wartime and peacetime, in the cities and the countryside, in periods of growth and periods of crisis.
