The United States Since 1898|
This survey course examines United States history in the twentieth century in its geographic expanse from the North American continent into the U.S. island empire in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. While this course will survey a traditional U.S. political history, it places an emphasis on the diversity of experiences of those living within the United States. We will explore how the U.S. amassed its island empire, how immigration law emerged, how U.S. international affairs such as wars impacted domestic policies, as well as how domestic social movements such as labor, Civil Rights, feminist, Indigenous sovereignty, and social justice movements shaped the course of United States history into the present. In doing so, we will pay critical attention to the historical and analytical themes including, but not limited to, race, indigeneity, gender, and sexuality.
