HST 327, 328 - Women's America

1 course unit
Women, whether as daughters, wives, mothers, workers, scholars, or political activists, have played pivotal roles in American history.  This course, an overview of American women's history from colonial times to the present, examines the variety of women's experiences through time by analyzing the myriad roles they played in the family, society, economy, and national politics.  Specifically, using gender as its primary lens of analysis, this course seeks to uncover the broader contexts of American women's experience by examining the dynamic interplay of women and men, values and culture, and discussing how structures of power linked especially to gender, but also to class and race, shaped women's lives and mediated their experiences in the private and public worlds of America.
Meets general academic requirement HU (and W when offered as 328).
