Desc:AMERICAN MASCULINITY: This course will introduce the methods and tools of historical analysis. Students will learn the basics of finding, utilizing, and evaluating historical sources, assessing historical work through writing historiographical essays, and organizing and composing research papers. This work will be done through an exploration of the topic of American masculinity. The class will survey differing historical understandings of manhood across American history, and take a comparative approach in examining cultural, geographic, and racial conceptions of masculinity. We will pay particular attention to how varying perceptions of manliness have shaped American popular culture, race relations, criminality, and the physical landscapes of public and private space. Ultimately we will use our study of the history of American manhood as context for understanding topical issues of gender, race, class, and crime. Modern, U.S. PREREQUISITE: NONE. This course is crosslisted with L98 301U.


A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
