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
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.
