dc.description.abstractThis course will survey American history from 1900 to the present time. Using both secondary and primary source documentation, students will come to an understanding of the myriad forces that worked to shape what many call “The American Century.” In addition to using traditional political and economic viewpoints for historical interpretation, students will also assess the impact of social and cultural forces on our collective past. This comprehensive perspective will enable students to come to an understanding as to how and why history is constructed and to answer fundamental questions about history and the historical process: Who writes it? Who reads it? What are its purposes? To this end, students will be required to analyze critique and interpret primary source materials as they offer their own view of historical events and construct some historical documentation of their own. Given the central nature of primary texts and our reactions to them, active participation during class will form an essential element of the course.en_US
