History 367 - Spring 2020

This course will explore dramatic changes in American society during the half-century from the Civil War to the end of WWI. We will discuss industrialization; mass immigration from Europe, Asia and Latin America; the vast movement of rural people to cities; the fall of Reconstruction and rise of Jim Crow; the expansion of organized labor; birth of American Socialism; and the rise of the American empire in the Caribbean and the Philippines. The course will, in addition, analyze the many and varied social reform efforts of the turn of the twentieth century, from women's suffrage to anti-lynching campaigns; from trust-busting and anti-immigrant crusades to the settlement house movement.
