Description

How did the United States transform from a backwater colony to a global superpower over the course of roughly 200 years? Contrary to popular opinion, this transformation was not “natural” or foreordained. This course surveys the history of US foreign relations from the American Revolution to the War on Terror, focusing not only on diplomatic and military engagements, but also on its economic, religious, social, and cultural dimensions. We will take an inclusive view of the US in the world by paying particular attention to the ways that women, people of color, US colonial subjects, and immigrants have shaped the ideas, policies, and practices of US foreign relations.

Our study of this history will draw from a variety of materials, including treaties and court cases, letters and memoirs, maps and political cartoons, popular novels and films, and more. This course will equip you to better understand and analyze the major foreign affairs debates of today, including overseas wars, trade disputes, and the globalization of American culture.
