  • History 275D, Introduction to American Historiography, is a course intended for first-year graduate students in American History. The course is designed to introduce beginning graduate students to major works of scholarship, both old and new, in American history, ranging from the colonial period to the present. It is also meant to introduce students to Berkeley's American history faculty, as various members of the department will visit the course to preside over discussions of texts within their field of specialization. The course meets weekly for a two-hour discussion of assigned readings; writing assignments will focus on review essays based on the assigned reading.
