Seminar in American History: Recent Period

Class description

This is the second half of a two-quarter Research Seminar on twentieth century U.S. history, broadly defined.

Student learning goals

General method of instruction

Recommended preparation

Students who enroll in the seminar should have some background in twentieth century American history, though not necessarily on their proposed research topic.

Class assignments and grading

Each member of the seminar will be expected to produce a scholarly paper (ideally of publishable quality) by the end of the second quarter. Papers may explore any topic in any period of the "long" twentieth century (since 1880), so long as primary sources are available. Comparative and interdisciplinary approaches are appropriate. We will meet weekly during the Winter quarter, less frequently during the Spring quarter when final drafts are due.

The information above is intended to be helpful in choosing courses. Because the instructor may further develop his/her plans for this course, its characteristics are subject to change without notice. In most cases, the official course syllabus will be distributed on the first day of class.
