Section Information for Fall 2024

The course will cover Virginia politics and history from the adoption of the 1902 state Constitution which ushered in the era dominated by one political party and a strictly segregated Jim Crow culture, through the early years of the 21st Century and the emergence of a new, multi-cultural, multi-lingual, politically purple state. In addition to tracing the history, the course will focus on the underlying demographic and economic changes which drove the politics.

Emphasis will be on class participation and discussion and students will be required to produce two papers: one short (5-7 pages) due midterm and one longer (20+ pages) due at the end of the term.
