New York City occupies a central place in histories of U.S. inequality, immigration, politics, finance, and more. Through historical scholarship, novels, poems, film, music, and art, this course examines New York during the most formative period of modern America: the Long Gilded Age. It familiarizes students with various historiographies of New York and the U.S., including those focusing on labor, immigration, gender, sexuality, and race. Students will learn how these interpretations inform, influence, and contradict each other, while also acquiring necessary skills to produce their own historical analyses of the city.
