A major theme of the course is the meaning and limits of democratization in the early republic. Particular issues to be addressed include: the emergence of a postcolonial national identity; the growth and expansion of slavery; changes in racial ideology; the rise of a two-party political system; ongoing conflicts with Native Americans; the changing status of women; and the US in the world. The focus will be on the recent historiography of the early republic, although some older classic works may be read. The course will be offered both in-person and online (synchronously).
