European Conquest of America explores many of the major issues relating to the creation and development of colonial North America. We will focus particularly on the extraordinary heterogeneous mixture of peoples who lived in North America and the Caribbean, and on the complexity and consequences of their interactions. Throughout the semester we will continually evaluate arguments among historians about whether or not it makes sense to understand the colonial period in terms of a conquest, or whether Native Americans retained enough power and resistance throughout the colonial period to make such an interpretation inaccurate.

HIST 890 - RETHINKING THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT

This course explores the most powerful social revolution in American history: the civil rights movement of the mid-twentieth century. We look at the movement as a nationwide phenomenon. While it was anchored in the terrain of the Deep South – particularly Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia – grass-roots struggles also shook northern cities such as Boston and New York, and surged across the Midwest and West Coast. We study well-known leaders like Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr., along with other activists and organizers: Fannie Lou Hamer, Ella Baker, Septima Clark, Medgar Evers, and Bob Moses among them. We examine the idea of the “long civil rights movement,” explore regional similarities and differences, balance the role of national leaders versus local struggles, and consider what the movement changed in the end.
