Section Information for Spring 2018
This course will require students to write an article-length (25-30 page) research paper based on primary sources and the relevant secondary literature on the topic. Students will work on a subject of their choice, developed in consultation with the instructor. The period is broadly construed to encompass the entire era from the 1750s through the 1820s. In addition to political or military topics relating to the War for Independence, students are urged to consider a wide range of social or cultural history subjects, including those that relate to women, slavery, religion, or transatlantic history. After reading a series of articles to acquaint themselves with the recent historiography on the American Revolution, students, with the assistance of the instructor, will focus their attention on the various stages of researching and writing the paper.
Prior to the first class meeting, students may request a list of possible topics from the instructor or contact her to discuss possible topics, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enrollment is limited to students with a major in Cultural Studies, Education (Community College) or History.
Enrollment is limited to Graduate or Non-Degree level students.
Students in a Non-Degree Undergraduate degree may not enroll.
