Course Description

This course explores United States history from the Reconstruction Era to the present. Through the analytical lenses of race, class, gender, ethnicity and sexuality, students examine the major forces that shaped, and continue to shape, the political, social, cultural, scientific, technological and environmental life of the nation. Specific attention is dedicated to examining the ways that the philosophical foundations of the U.S. Constitution and the government institutions it established evolved, and continue to evolve, in response to the ever-changing social, economic, and political rights and obligations of its inhabitants.
