Gender, Race, and Citizenship

Spring 2020

Taught By: Elaine Abelson

Section: A

CRN: 6736

Credits: 4

This seminar explores the history of American women from the early republic to the present day, focusing on three periods: the aftermath of the Revolutionary War, the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, and the decades following WWII. Students examine social, economic, and political issues among and across groups of women and men in order to explore and evaluate structures of inequality, racial categories, and sexual identity. “Gender, Race and Citizenship” focuses on reading and analyzing primary sources and examining how historians use these sources to write history. The goal is to develop critical and analytical skills and to understand the racial and gender dimensions of American history -- the complex processes by which a ‘White Man’s Republic’ was initially constituted and subsequently challenged. This course counts toward the Gender Studies minor.
