HIST 23 American History since 1980

This course examines American history during the era of rapid globalization.  It focuses on the continued ideological power of the American Dream and the diminishing opportunity to actually live that Dream; conflicts between groups struggling to achieve genuine equality for all men and women and other groups determined to maintain traditional hierarchies based on class, race, and gender; and the contested meaning of the actions of the world’s sole military superpower. Open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors.
