Description

History 261 is an undergraduate survey of American history from 1865 to the present. It examines the major social, political, economic, and cultural developments that shaped this nation in the wake of the Civil War: from Reconstruction to the Great Depression and the New Deal; from world war to the Cold War and the Rebellions of the 1960s; from the administrations of Reagan to those of Obama and Trump, accompanied by discussion of current issues such as Black Lives Matter, immigration, prisons and policing, all set in historical context. There will be a midterm, a final, a short paper, and reading quizzes.
