Section Information for Spring 2020
The years from 1815 to 1850 were a period of intense change in American social, political, religious, and economic life. It was an era in which the young nation, its residents, and its neighbors were transformed by revolutions in communications, transportation, markets, and industry; “burnt over” by religious revivals and experiments; mobilized by the rise of partisan politics and moral reform; challenged by changing configurations of work, gender, family, and community; dislocated by free and forced migrations across the continent; divided by rising sectionalism; shaken by economic panics; and brutalized by enslavement and war. This course provides a graduate-level overview of how historians have defined, explained, analyzed, and debated these changes and their significance in the histories of North America, the United States, and the wider world.
