18. HIST 168: History and memory: The United States VT

Contact:Frank Warren
Abstract:This course will study how history is remembered and how the memory of history

The course will meet the United States Context of of Experience. In the
syllabus submitted such topics as the New Nation, a slave rebellion, the Civil
