This seminar will allow students to pursue research interests in U. S. History in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. While the focus will admittedly be wide-ranging and inclusive, we will begin with a flexible framework built around issues of social structure (social differentiation), ideology and practice and identity formation. I anticipate that research topics will encompass cultural, social and intellectual history. Students with interdisciplinary, comparative and offbeat research projects will be welcomed. As an integral part of the seminar, we will discuss selected interpretive, theoretical and methodological issues generated by a limited number of core readings, in part to be designed by the participants.
