This course offers an introduction to the forces that have shaped American political, social, and cultural institutions from the American Civil War through the present. The course traces American history as global history through study of the encounter and mixing of global cultures in the making of diverse American cultures and in the encounter of the United States with other nations in foreign policy, trade, and war. Major topics will include the Lincoln presidency and the American Civil War and Reconstruction; the conquest of Indian nations in the American West; the historical development of American foreign policy and involvement overseas; the onset of ‘Jim Crow’ racial segregation and the rise of racial violence (lynching); the “new immigration” from southern and eastern Europe; the Gilded Age, the Progressive Era, and the presidency of Woodrow Wilson; the 1920s, the “Jazz Age,” and the Harlem Renaissance; the Great Depression, the New Deal, and the presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt; U.S. involvement in World War II; the U.S. in the Cold War and the Truman and Eisenhower presidencies; the Vietnam War, 1960s social movements, including the Civil Rights Movement, and the Kennedy and Johnson presidencies; American culture wars in the 1970s and 1980s and the Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Bush I, and Clinton presidencies; immigration from Mexico and other Latin American nations in recent decades; the Bush II and Obama presidencies, the Iraq War, and the American security state after 9/11; and American society (including white nationalism, racialized police brutality, the death of George Floyd, and Black Lives Matter), politics, and ‘America First’ foreign policy during the Trump presidency.

Readings will include a textbook (John Mack Faragher, et al., Out of Many: A History of the American People, 7th edition, Vol. II) and primary sources.
