History of Women in the U.S., Hist 188, S10 Page 2 of 7 for this section—This course surveys American women’s history from the colonial period to the present. Through lectures, case studies, discussions, films, and music, we will consider historical contexts in which American women have shaped (and have been shaped by) social, economic, political, and cultural institutions. The class will focus on relationships between individuals, ethnic/racial groups, and cultural groups in order to better understand and appreciate the diversity of American institutions and cultures. In addition, course reading and materials presented in class will highlight historical and contemporary inequities and efforts by individuals and groups to further America’s unfinished journey toward a truly egalitarian society. The class is especially appropriate for History majors and minors, Social Science majors pursuing gender as a topic, students completing the social science subject matter preparation requirements prior to entering a teaching credential program, and undergraduates from any major seeking to satisfy GE Area S. Course Goals and Student Learning Objectives With a particular emphasis on the historical experiences of women, students will study the interrelationship of individuals, racial groups, and cultural groups to understand and appreciate issues of diversity, equality, and structured inequality in the U.S., its institutions, and its cultures. Student Learning Objectives:
