Many students today participate not only in their hometown and campus communities, but also in online communities like MySpace, Facebook, and MSN Messenger. This course asks if such geographically dispersed communities are really so new? How did people in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries who lived on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean, and along the North American seaboard, participate in similar networked communities long before computers, telephones, or even regular snail mail? The course narrative begins with the early English settlements in America and ends with the separation of the Thirteen Colonies. Using primary and secondary sources we will think about how people formed and fought over commercial, political, religious, military, and counter-cultural communities. In a single moment, an individual might have participated in communities ranging from tightly local to broadly oceanic, physically proximate to intellectually intimate, carefully peaceful to frighteningly violent, and meticulously ordered to vibrantly diverse

The course is organized around weekly reading and writing assignments. Course work will help students to develop the skills necessary to critique readings, analyze sources, and research, organize, write, and revise a range of informal and formal assignments common in history and, more broadly, the social sciences and humanities.
