Course Title
America in the Twentieth Century

Description of Course:

This seminar will introduce graduate students to the main themes and questions animating twentieth century American life--both as people experienced them and as scholars have tried to capture them. We will explore historians' efforts to interpret and evaluate landmark events, long-term trends, and everyday life in the twentieth century United States. In so doing, we will examine how classic and more recent texts have analyzed law and politics, the development of mass culture, social movements, new forms of labor, urban growth and intellectual currents.
