From Homespun to Fast Fashion: A Global History of Textiles

Professor Kimberly Alexander

 

Welcome to History 690/890, a seminar course that introduces you to the craft of history through the study of global textiles.

 

The course teaches you how historians think and pose questions as well as how they choose, weigh, and interpret evidence in their efforts to understand and write about the past. Focusing initially on four fibers--silk, wool, linen, and cotton—we will examine how people have clothed themselves across time and place.

 

We will explore creation and consumption of textiles through the histories of natural and synthetic fibers and dyes; processes such as weaving, knitting, block and screen printing; mass marketing and merchandising, and the importance of sustainability and eco-conscious production models.

 

You will read, discuss, and write on one text and numerous journal and online articles. In each case, you will analyze how historians constructed their arguments and assessing whether or not you think they successfully made their cases. By the end of this class, you will have developed a set of analytical skills that are essential to historians but can be applied beyond the walls of the university in a range of occupations that require critical thinking, writing, and speaking.

Citizenship in the Americas  

 

 

The definition and substance of citizenship have changed dramatically in the past two hundred plus years. Since the violent birth of independent nations in the Americas, countries as varied as the United States, Cuba, and Brazil have experienced struggles over basic assumptions about 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 and legal debates over access to the ballot box, racial violence, immigrant rights, LGBTQ+ equality, inclusion of people with disabilities, and other issues. While governments and courts have historically played a central role in defining and enforcing rights, at the same time, citizens and non-citizens alike have participated in the process of redefining rights, often altering broad societal understandings of citizenship and inclusion. In this class, we will trace the evolution of expanding (and occasionally contracting) rights and responsibilities over time, the question of inclusion versus exclusion, and the experience of diverse social groups as they demand increased access to political and economic power, with a focus on the United States and Latin America.

Witches, Magic, and Witch Trials

This course will explore witchcraft and magic from 1500 to the present. We will focus heavily on regional cases of witchcraft and magical belief, and on the famous Salem Witch Trials, and we will also broaden our perspective and explore magic and witchcraft from around the world and into the modern era. In addition to historical witchcraft, we will explore contemporary debates over public monuments and memorials to victims of witch trials, in the process, we will consider the ethics of consumerism and tourism at sites of tragedy. Finally, we will study representations of witchcraft in popular culture to examine how media and literature have shaped the way the modern public understands historical witchcraft.

This is the capstone research seminar for the undergraduate History major. All students will undertake research in primary and secondary sources and prepare a substantial original research paper. Many of our class meetings will include workshopping sessions of your research in progress.
