History 1302: United States History Since 1865 (Online)
This course surveys the political, economic, social, legal, and cultural history of the United States from the end of the Civil War to the present. At the end of the Civil War, the United States was anything but united. It had just fought a long, bloody war that left the nation with both physical and ideological wounds to heal. This course will begin here and explore how the United States emerged from these challenges to become a modern, global super power. Along the way, we will also discuss legal developments; migrations; foreign relations; and economic, political, cultural and religious transformations. Throughout the course, we will be exploring the role of gender, race, class, religion, and political perspective in defining the nation and shaping individual experiences. We will be attentive to the diversity of the “American experience” as well as to the multiple and sometimes conflicting visions of the ideal nation, politically and culturally, throughout history. The course will also help students develop the skills central to historical inquiry, including critical readings of historical documents, analytical writing, and interpreting multiple perspectives on both specific events and broader themes.
