HIST 316 - United States Women since 1869

(3cr) This course examines U.S. history since 1869 by focusing on women's experiences and perspectives. We look at women's paid and unpaid labor, their participation in the political system, feminist and other political activism, changing understandings of gender roles, and popular perceptions of women's place in American society. Throughout the course we will ask what difference it makes to place women at the center of historical inquiry, and by looking at primary documents and historians' interpretations we will uncover the narratives that emerge when we consider women as historical actors. The impact of class, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation on women's lives will be emphasized throughout the course.
