The Long 19th Century|
Fall 2019 not offered
The Long 19th Century explores the history of the United States from the Early Republic to the Progressive Era (1787-1900). During that time, an array of different groups and competing interests structured the course of the United States. The period witnessed the transition of the United States from a confederation of states to a centralized nation. Revolutions in transportation, industrialization, and communication transformed the daily life of every American. The emancipation of African Americans and efforts by women to achieve gender equality challenged the conceptions of American citizenship. This course examines these ideas, shifts, and challenges to understand how the United States emerged from the 19th century into the modern world and how that emergence informs the world that we live in today.
