HIS 100-02 - Making History (Spring)

4 credits (Spring)
Cold War America. This course provides an introduction to issues of historical causation, argumentation, and evidence through the lens of the American Cold War era. We will explore the cultural, social, intellectual, and political history of the United States from the 1940s through the 1980s, paying close attention to the moments in which foreign and domestic politics shaped the daily lives of Americans. We also will consider the historical methods used by scholars to conduct research and write about the past. We will work with primary and secondary sources as well as films and music in order to develop the skills necessary to analyze historical scholarship.

Prerequisite: None.
Instructor: Lewis
