HIST 4700 Multicultural America

This course investigates the role of religion, race, and ethnicity in the United States from the colonial period to the present. Focusing on the interaction between religious, racial, and ethnic identities among native peoples, slaves, immigrants, and the white majority, the course explores the ways that race, ideas of racial superiority and inferiority, and ethnicity shaped the history of the United States. Particular emphasis is placed on the social evolution of communities in America that are identifiable by race, religion, or ethnic identity, with attention to the ways these factors helped shape important political developments.
