HIST 96.30 American Empire and Development

This seminar examines the phenomenon of empire in the history of the United States’ relations with the world.  It focuses specifically on the ways in which American empire has intersected with the ideas and practices associated with the concept of development.  While we will spend a little bit of time on the outset of the term on definitions of key concepts (What is empire? What is development?), the bulk of the course readings and discussions will focus on how U.S. empire and development were intertwined in particular places and times during the twentieth century. 


Not being offered during 2022-23
