History: Making America

Class Details

Spring and Summer Terms only.

The United States has always believed in its ‘exceptionalism’, a new society distinct from the old world left behind in Europe, based on immigration bound together by the American Constitution. Its development included conflicts over slavery and civil rights, the rise of consumerism, phenomenal economic growth, and territorial expansion rising to world dominance. The 21st century poses new challenges to its role in the world and the rise of new populism at home.
