HIST 410 sec. 01 - MAKING MONEY
It seems so simple, but what is money, really? Wampum, tobacco, gold, paper: these are just a few things that have served as a means of exchange at various points in American history. But why? How did we get to where we are today? This course explores the political, philosophical, and cultural histories of American money from European contact to the present. In particular, the class will discuss changing understandings of money as both a concept and a physical object. Course meets the History major requirement for Group I.
