Power and Inequality in American History is a readings course that covers the full sweep of American history from early Native America to the near-present. The course will concentrate on four themes within the broader rubric of power and inequality: race, class, gender, and capitalism. We will pay special attention to transnational approaches and to the ever-shifting politics of American historical writing. We will read classic and newer works to demonstrate how historical practice has changed over time. The course will serve as a broad survey for graduate students in any department or discipline who study any period or theme in American history.
