This course is an introduction to the literature of North American history from the beginning of European settlement to the Civil War. It is also an introduction to the study of history at the graduate level, which will focus on teaching you the particular reading and analytical skills that distinguish a professional approach to the historical literature from other ways of reading history books. Rather than a systematic survey of pre-Civil War history, the course will emphasize key questions in the field, significant approaches and modes of analysis, and important interpretive frameworks through which American history literatures have developed.
