HIST 2467 "Ugly Americans" in the "American Century:" A Transnational History (Fall: 3 )
This course examines how involvement in an increasingly global community has shaped the history of the United States since the late nineteenth century. As such, it is chiefly concerned with asking the following questions: How have "American" socio-political, economic, and cultural trends been shaped by interactions with others in the wider world? How have the experiences of Americans, at home and abroad, shaped the world around them? While this course examines some familiar topics such as labor and immigration, war and diplomacy, the struggle for civil rights, consumerism and popular culture, it is not a comprehensive survey of U.S. history.
