HIST 2 #EverythingHasAHistory: Understanding America Today

This introductory course will explore the historical roots of current events in the United States.  This course demonstrates how history is woven into the fabric of our everyday lives and why understanding history is important for understanding the present and navigating the future.  We will focus on case studies—such as immigration and borders, computers and society, and race and whiteness—and expect the syllabus to evolve in real time depending on what is in the news during the quarter.  This class serves as an introductory course for History majors, but is open to all students.
