This seminar will serve as a writing workshop for students engaged in independent historical research projects set in the United States (or in lands that would later fall under the sovereignty of United States) during the long nineteenth century. Research projects need not overlap in theme, focus, or approach, and we will not discuss secondary literature on the period. Instead, our group meetings and collective work will be geared entirely toward the task of helping one another produce an interesting, original, and well-written essay on a historical question of individual interest.
