  • This research seminar is for students working on American history since 1900. This is not a reading seminar. We will spend some time discussing critical elements of the historian's craft (formulating topics; mapping out research programs; situating one's work within the historiography; designing, writing, and re-writing article length essays; etc.). But from very early in the semester the seminar will be devoted to the drafting, production, and refinement of seminar papers.
