Lecture notes Oct 24 midterm handed out-due oct 26 1) Spanish American war a) Reinforced racist ideas, and the diff bt the US and the rest of the world, also that races needed to be separated within the country b) Roosevelt- pulled back in military force, after phillipines forces were reduced i) Wasn’t afraid to use military power, substituted dollar diplomacy for military force, especially in latin America but also in asia. Dollar diplomats tended to be college graduates. This depended on the academic revolution, the rise of intellectuals. c) Rise of the university i) They tended to provide a way of problem solving through a philosophical approach not necessarily an immediate approach. ii) 2 roles for gender identity (1) US was a society suspicious of the military, sports became a way of developing manly leadership, by being a football player you could show your leadership and courage, kinda like being an officer. PENIS (a) Football- originally a sport for the wealthy, but by 1900 it was a widely played sport. (2) Place where middle class women could develop there interests. 1890s-1/2 of college students were women. Created a new middle class identity, wasn’t expected that women would develop their own career but that they would be philanthropists. (a) Has an effect on social movements, NAACP-being the product of college educated middle class blacks-they applied their new approach to the world that they learned in college and applied it to race relations. iii) Early function of universities- (1) Originally a place for priests to study (2) By early 1800s the area of study widened to latin, Hebrew. Graduated at 18, would typically become ministers or lawyers (3) U of NC, first state university, 1889-started to prepare students for church. (4) US universities (a) Needed to transform bc technical schools were popping up and stealing students, the advantage was that the elites would go to the prestigious schools to meet other elites.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
