Lit of The Field:

SAME AS G65.1204

The course proceeds both chronologically and thematically; in addition to covering major periods and developments, we also try to illustrate a variety of historical subfields, including labor, environment, gender, culture, social movements, immigration, race, domestic politics, foreign relations. We ask students to read the best of both new and old scholarship; each week we contrast a “classic” work with new scholarship. We do this to familiarize students with disagreements among historians and with a sense of how history-writing moves and changes. We also hope to formulate our own arguments, both individual and collective, about the eras we cover.
