This course is an intensive, graduate-level overview of modern and contemporary US history, 1876-present. While the course aspires to broad coverage of major historiographical questions, this quarter we will also focus thematically on the relationship of the US and the world, the question of empire and the cultural and political entanglements of US foreign and domestic policy.
