HIST213 - History of Women in the United States


This course has been designed as an introduction to the history of women in the United States from the colonial period to the present. It will be surveying the field of American women's history in order to understand how specific political, social and economic transformations in the nation's past have affected the female half of the population. Throughout, it will remain attuned to ethnic and racial diversity and to regional differences and class distinctions in the lives of U.S. women. It will look at women's culture, as distinct from the dominant male culture, and analyze women's writings, art, life cycles and sexuality. It will work to understand the collective lives of women as workers, family members, reformers, and political activists as well as the individual experiences of women in the U.S. from the colonial era into the 21st Century.
