HIST 646G - Readings of American History II


This course is an initiation into the scholarly conversation about American history since 1877 - what history is, what it means, how to study the past, how to think like a historian. More specifically, we examine and participate in a few of the most significant topics in recent American history under discussion among professional historians and kibbitzers. We learn how to find, listen to, and join in these friendly talks, cordial debates, and passionate arguments. Accordingly, the skills and knowledge base for this course include bibliographical researching, scholarly reading, synthesizing, speaking, and writing. And, of course, the art and science of scholarly conversation.

Prerequisite: admission to the MAE History program.
Credits: 3
