Présentation

This class aims to provide a survey of the cultural history of the United States over the longue durée, beginning around the time of the Zoot Suit riots in the early 1940s and concluding with a consideration of the cultural context surrounding the Republican Contract with America in the mid 1990s. It also introduces students to the methodologies and theoretical tools available to cultural historians, and demonstrates how cultural analyses can be used to investigate the political terrain as well as to map broader shifts in gender, sexuality, class, and race.
