New Course Supplement 2016


HIST 96.32 American Characters: Biography and the Historians' Craft

This seminar follows what has been a recent “biographical turn” among academic historians. Besides introducing students to the theoretical and conceptual questions involved in the narration of individual lives, it will survey some of the most inventive historical biographies of the past quarter century. Each student will execute a multi-step exploration of the lived experience, significance, and, if applicable, impact of a single individual from any period of US history.

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.
