New Course Supplement 2016


HIST 33.01 Walmart to Wall Street: Excavating American Capitalism since 1970

This course takes on fundamental transformations in economic life from the end of the Bretton Woods system to the crisis of 2008. Rather than a chronological survey, it is an historical excavation of three key trends in the period: technological innovation; globalization; and financialization. Readings and lectures will contextualize each of these developments in the specific history of the post-Bretton Woods United States, and then trace their longer intellectual, political, and social origins.

Distributive and/or World Culture

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
