HIUS 288. The First American Gilded Age
"The Gilded Age,” a term coined by Mark Twain, refers to a period in United States History (1870s to about 1900) when owners of huge concentrations of capital achieved unprecedented power within all branches of the federal and state governments. It was also a period in which the expansion of global markets in labor and commodities contributed to a dramatic reorientation of American culture. This course considers these related transformations from different perspectives with particular attention to the themes of class, race and ethnic conflict, rural crisis, racial ideology, gender identity, mass consumption, industrial work, commercialized leisure, and colonialism. The goal of the course is to enable students to sharpen their critical, analytic, verbal and writing skills in addition to familiarizing them with diverse interpretations, approaches and sources.
