George M. Woytanowitz

Introduces students to historical reasoning. Students learn to analyze evidence from the past in context in order to explain how the past produced the ever-changing present. The course introduces students to social, political, cultural, and economic developments from the American Civil War to the present day. It not only traces how ideas and lived experiences within each of those categories of historical analysis changed over time, but also shows how developments in each realm of American life shaped
the others. It pays special attention to how American politics, institutions, and cultural norms emerged from—and produced—a changing role for the United States in its global context. It also interrogates how efforts to define American identity have both provided the terrain for inclusion and been used to justify the exclusion of various people, including racial, ethnic, and immigrant groups, people of different genders and sexual identities, and people of diverse religious and political beliefs. This course fulfills the Historical Studies requirement in the core curriculum.
