The U.S. South: A Global History

HIST 396
Spring 2022
Section: 01  
Course Cluster and Certificates: Urban Studies

When people think of the U.S. South, they often think of a place that's isolated and insular--a region cut off from the rest of the United States and the wider world. Yet nothing could be further from the truth. Throughout its history, the South has been deeply entangled in the world and in the larger processes of globalization. Few regions of the United States have been more connected or more cosmopolitan. This seminar explores the global history of the U.S. South from the early 1800s to the present. By tracing the transnational movement of people, ideas, and commodities, it seeks to understand how the world has shaped the South, and also how the South has shaped the world.
