HST 467 Gender and Sexuality in U.S. History

How have notions of what it meant to be masculine and feminine changed over the centuries and why did they change? How did men and women experience life differently? What factors affected what was considered appropriate sexually and who enforced the standards? In this seminar, students will read and discuss books and articles related to these questions before choosing an individual research topic. Then they will do high-quality research in primary and secondary sources, show an awareness of historiographical debates, and write a paper with a coherent and well-evidenced argument.
