HIST 520 - American Colonial History

(3 cr) This course examines the development of colonies in America, 1492-1763. Instead of seeing the history of the mainland North American colonies as the rise of the United States, this course places the Colonies in an Atlantic context. The multi-imperial, multi-ethnic, multi-cultural approach will focus on the political, cultural, social, and economic interactions between Indians, Africans, and Europeans throughout the New World. Students will undertake an intensive course of readings on historians’ interpretations of the major political, social, and economic issues of the Colonial period.
