This course invites graduate students to deepen their knowledge of many of the classic texts of post-1865 US historiography, as well as some of the field?s leading-edge work. Rather than a systematic survey of post-Civil War history, the course aims to stimulate discussion of key questions in the field, and to illuminate the explanatory and descriptive power of various approaches and modes of analysis. The common readings for the course (see schedule, below) will be supplemented by individual reading assignments (TBA).
