Courses: 20th Cent American Society-US 1890 - 1945 (HISTB241001)

Fall 2011

Class Number: 1360
This course examines the first half of the twentieth century in depth. While the twentieth century has often been called the American Century (usually by Americans), this century can truthfully be looked to as the moment when American influence and power, for good and ill, came to be felt on a national and global scale. While much of this "bigfoot" quality is associated with the post WWII period (see you in the spring), one cannot understand the America of today - in the early 21st century - without looking at the earlier period. This course looks closely at the political, social, and cultural developments that helped shape America in these pivotal years.
