Seminar in American History: Recent Period

Class description

This two-quarter research seminar has a broad subject area: the United States since the Civil War. The object of the course is to facilitate the writing of article-length research papers on topics of individual interest. The only limitations are that they be researchable and have something to do with the United States in the 20th or late 19th centuries. We will meet weekly during the winter quarter primarily to discuss research techniques and writing strategies. Some preliminary assignments will be due that quarter; rough drafts and the final paper will be due Srping quarter. No grade will be assigned until the end of Spring quarter. It will retroactively apply to Winter quarter.
