Where do our ideas come from? How are they related to our national identity? How have American culture, politics, society, and economics been shaped by something as seemingly inconsequential as a thought? Intro to American Intellectual History will answer those questions by examing the thinkers and ideas that most profoundly shaped the United States of America. This course will examine the ideas that formed the American Revolution, molded the Constitution, ignited the Civil War, animated the Progressive Era, shaped the policy of the World Wars, manifested the civil rights movement, and brought about America's postmodern moment. By examining the thoughts and minds of influential Americans like Thomas Paine, W.E.B. DuBois, and Mark Twain, students will gain a new appreciation for the world they live in and themselves as products of collective American thought.

Mental disorder is a universal and persistent condition in human history. Every society has struggled to make sense of it; every society has struggled to address it. But, what is mental disorder? Is it a disease? If so, of what? The body? The brain? The soul? Is it a chemical imbalance? Genetic destiny? Is it the wage of sin? The mark of the devil? The curse of a god? Or is it a social label or cultural construct - a name slapped on thought, feeling, or behavior that defies a society's definition of "normal?" This course seeks to answer these questions by exploring the great range of beliefs human societies, ancient to modern and from across the globe, have developed to identify and define mental disorder as well as the methods they have employed to treat or contain it.

HIST440D: Citizens and Persons  

This course is part of the HONR400 Honors Symposium “Being Human. 

 

ProfJulia Rodriguez, UNH History Department

 

The definition and substance of citizenship have changed dramatically in the course of history. Modern societies in particular have experienced struggles over who belongs to the nation, who deserves to protect it and be protected by it, as well as ideas about individual and group rights. These conflicts continue to the present day, as seen in the public debates over access to the ballot box, immigrant rights, marriage equality, inclusion of people with disabilities, the persistence of state violence against minorities, and other issues. 

 

In this class, we will trace the evolution of expanding (and occasionally contracting) political and civil rights and responsibilities over time; our exploration has a broad geographic scope, with an emphasis on events in multicultural American nations. Our approach emphasizes the history of ideas in action – how laws, institutions, social practices, unique historical contexts, and individuals’ understanding of self and other have mutually produced each other. 

 

Citizens and Persons is part of the Symposium “Being Human” and thus we will engage this semester in an interdisciplinary conversation exploring fundamental concepts such as: personhood, conceptions of humanity, definitions of rights and responsibilities, dehumanization. We will also discuss and assess a range of proposals for the amelioration of abuses and inequalities perpetuated in the past and present.
