HIST 575 American Voices
3 hours

Departments/Programs:

This course explores the ways we use primary accounts to make claims of historical truth. Together we will read a variety of documents - some considered foundational to the formation of an American national identity - and interrogate the liimits and possibilities they hold for teaching American history. We will intend to develp both our own understanding of how to interpret documents and our ability to help students do the same.
