The Course


This course will trace the evolution of the America’s place in the world, from its roots in colonialism through its ascent as a global hegemon, to the present. It will consider both perspectives from Americans and from non-Americans. It will examine materials that address these questions both explicitly and implicitly. The course proceeds (roughly) chronologically.
