Modern African American History: The Cost of Liberty

 

This course will examine the African American experience in the United States from slavery to the polarizing election of Barack Obama. We will be exploring the history of the modern United States (from about 1860-present) through the eyes of those who had the deepest appreciation for what it meant to pursue and secure freedom and liberty. This course will cover crucial historical eras from the perspective of African Americans. Our topics will include Reconstruction, Jim Crow, the Great Migration, WWI, the Harlem Renaissance, the New Deal, WWII, the civil rights movement, Black Power, the meaning of the “color line” in recent American history, and the election of Barack Obama. Our investigation will have us consider the ideas, culture, social movements, and material conditions of African Americans and how they, perhaps more than any other American constituency, helped define our current notions of American freedom and liberty.

The United States and the Cold War

This course offers an introduction to the history of the United States during the period of conflict known as the Cold War, from the 1940s to the 1990s. For these fifty years, the superpower rivalry between the United States and the Soviet Union dominated global events and left a legacy still evident in our lives today. Beginning with the origins of that rivalry, we will trace the development of Cold War strategies and their implementation in crises around the world, from the Berlin Blockade to the Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam War, and Iran-Contra Affair. In addition to examining foreign policy and the actions of Americans abroad, we will also explore how the Cold War impacted life for Americans at home. Students will gain a greater understanding of the flow of American history in the second half of the twentieth century and learn to think critically about the role of the United States overseas.

History of European Nationalism

1789-1914

This course will explore the history of modern European nationalism from the French Revolution to the beginning of World War I. Particular attention will be paid to its transformation from a revolutionary and internationalist force with relatively few supporters to a mass movement that was increasingly used to support state power and imperial expansion. Sources will include two novels and writings by both nationalists who developed the modern European “national idea” over the course of the nineteenth century and their critics. Contemporary scholarship and theories on the nature of nationalism and its relationship to gender, ethnicity, empire, and class will also be explored. Finally, the course will examine the relationship between modern European and anti-colonial nationalism as well as the role of nationalism in an increasingly globalized world.
