Section Information for Fall 2021

By the end of World War II, liberals in both the Democratic and Republican parties had shaped a political economy based on mass consumption, middle-class prosperity, the slow dismantling of racial distinctions, and unprecedented levels of interaction between the federal government and American citizens. While this New Deal order helped define the subsequent quarter century, conservatives steadily challenged its assumptions and eventually triumphed in the election of 1980. This seminar will explore this period in American history by defining political history broadly, to emphasize the lived experience of workers, consumers, activists, and other Americans as they jointly steered the nation’s course.
