Course Title
Home as an Idea and a Place

Description of Course:

We are bombarded with ideas and images of home and family, whether in political rhetoric or popular television. From the Victorian cult of domesticity to the twentieth-century American Dream of a white picket fence, home has been at the heart of American cultural politics. In this seminar, There’s No Place Like Home: Domesticity in U.S. History, we will use historical analysis to engage with evidence of past cultural conversations, including mass media, images, and text. We will also use a variety of historical approaches, including transnational history, labor history, feminist studies, and cultural history.
