Primary Instructor:

This course is an introduction to the history of American women — as a group, as individuals, and as members of different classes and regional, racial, and ethnic communities. Using work, politics, and sexuality as organizing concepts, it focuses particularly on the significance of gender in determining women's experiences from the early sixteenth century to 1870. Special attention is paid to initial and continuing encounters of Native Americans, Euro-Americans, and African Americans; to evolving constructions of "womanhood" and their significance for different groups of women; to the meaning of religious movements, wars, economic transformations, and demographic shifts for women's social relations; and to women's individual and collective efforts to determine the course of their own histories.
