Film & History: Representations ofImperialism in Modern World History

Imperialism represents one of the more brutal chapters in modern history. Its impact on native peoples and societies raises profound moral questions about culpability, collaboration, resistance, and justification of violence on both sides. How do we deal with the memory of such traumatic events in popular culture? How do those popular memories compare with the historical evidence? This course compares representations of imperialism in film history with the treatment of the same events by historians.

Don¿t Buy It: The Global History of Commodities

This course looks at how the mass demand for commodities in the late 19th and early 20th centuries changed the way people worked, lived, and saw themselves as they produced and consumed in radically different ways from their parents and grandparents. Long before the Internet, commodities circled the globe, connecting distant places to one another through chains of relationships created to produce, deliver and sell commodities. Commodities also linked people. They connected enslaved African producers to middle-class American consumers, Asian factory workers with Europeans taking beach holidays. Students examine both producers and consumers as they follow the chain of production of certain commodities¿rubber, sugar, corn, bananas, and housing. For their final project, students will produce and show a two-minute mini-documentary on one product in one country.

Introduction to Public History

Public history is an interdisciplinary form of scholarship practiced as public service. Public historians help create historical understanding by sharing authority and inquiry with a variety of partners, including audiences, museum professionals, reservationists, business leaders and others. Public historians are trained, first and foremost, as historians 'to conduct research, to craft interpretations and to write well. However, public historians must also be prepared to work collaboratively with partners for whom an understanding of history can have immediate practical implications. This course provides students with an introduction to the field. Students will explore the history of federal and state sponsorship of museums and historic sites, learn to think critically about the needs and interests of audiences, and explore best practices and ethics for public professionals. Recommended Course Preparation: Must have earned at least a 'C' in one 100 or 200 level SS or AH course.

Examination of women in European society from the mid-eighteenth century to the present.

In the process of connecting with each other, Africans, Europeans and Americans transformed themselves and each other, creating new worlds, both in the Americas and at home, for all. The relatively new field of Atlantic history was developed to study these connections and transformations in the early modern period as well as how they changed over time. This course will not concern itself exclusively with one area, nor follow necessarily a chronological path. We will study the making of an Atlantic working class, coerced labor, piracy, maronage, native rebellions and anti-colonial revolutions. Recommended Course Preparation HIST 341.

American Revolution

This course will explore the era of the American Revolution. We will examine what many historians call the "long Revolution," from the 1760s until about 1800.

This internal revolution saw different groups of peoples trying to enact conflicting visions of freedom and democracy. As part of this project, we'll try to understand what the Revolution meant to prominent "founding fathers" such as Thomas Jefferson and John Adams as well as what it meant to ordinary people: farmers, artisans, women, slaves, and Indians.

Seeing and Obscuring: Documenting America in the Modern Era, 1877-1945

For some Americans, the broad transformations that led to the emergence of modern America inspired great optimism and encouraged innovation. For others, changes in American habits and values inspired fear and nostalgia. Interestingly, both reactions can be found underneath a broad cultural trend prevalent during this period: the impulse to define, document, and interpret an authentic American culture. This seminar style American history class will examine this trend, training students to think about the ways in which four specific forms of cultural production --photography, preservation, tourism/spectacle, and documentary film --shaped Americans' collective identity and continue to impact our sense of who we are as a nation.
