This seminar is designed for students who want to conduct research on topics related to the political history of the United States in the nineteenth century. Common readings will be tailored around the particular interests of students, but will focus on such broad political history topics as the revival of interest in political economy and policy history, the impact of slavery on American politics, and the ways in which antebellum practices shaped aspects of the polity after the Civil War. Interested students should begin discussing potential research topics with me as soon as possible.
