Spring 2013 not offered
This course focuses on the role of New England in the transformation of the U.S. from an erstwhile colony to a dominant world power. We will look at regional trade and technology that were instrumental in this transformation--opium, ivory, slaves, and guns--as well as the intellectual arguments that effected this change. Preference to American Studies juniors and seniors; non-majors in order of seniority.
