HIST 304 - Jefferson’s America (4)


Beginning at the start of the American Revolution and ending in 1840, this course focuses on the American struggle for economic and political independence, the evolution of the American system of government, the role of the U.S. in other 18th- and 19th-century independence movements, and ideas about race, empire, and citizenship within the political, social, and cultural contexts of the United States’ development. The course will be framed by, but not exclusively devoted to, Thomas Jefferson’s visions regarding liberty, manhood, race, foreign relations, and the American character. See department chair.
