Course Description

In this three-quarter sequence, we will examine the history of America, from the colonial period to the present, as “contested ground” over the origins and meaning of liberty and equality. Using some secondary source texts from different political perspectives, such as the New York Times’ 1619 Project and Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of America contrasted with the more “patriotic” Wilfred McClay’s Land of Hope: An Invitation to the Great American Story, combined with primary source readings, we will seek to find a common meaning in America’s historical development. The first quarter will examine the period from 1492 to 1800, the second from 1800 until 1914, and the Spring from 1914 to the present.
