HIS 310 : Colonial America
Was the American Revolution radical? This course will investigate this crucial question and, in so doing, demonstrate to students that there are layers of meaning to our founding moment that our current discourse around democracy and justice tend to obscure. Course content will focus on constitutional issues and juxtaposing these issues with social and economic history, allowing students to compare political theories of independence with the ways in which life was lived on the ground across colonial America.
