HIS 100-01 - Introduction to Historical Inquiry: U.S. in the Age of Transatlantic Revolution

4 credits (Fall)
This course provides an introduction to issues of historical causation, argumentation, and evidence, through the lens of U.S. History in the age of the American, French, and Haitian Revolutions (1763-1815). After introductory units on historical methods and the concept of transatlantic history, we will spend the bulk of the semester considering U.S. history in a global context to understand how Revolutions shaped politics, culture, social relations, race, and gender. Students will work intensively with primary sources.

Prerequisite: None.
