HIST 51H WOMEN IN AMERICAN HISTORY HONORS

3 Units - 3 hours lecture
Transfers: CSU, UC
This course surveys the history of women in the United States from the pre-contact period to the present, addressing significant events, processes, individuals, and movements that have contributed to the nation’s development and women’s changing roles. The course investigates the ways in which geographic location, class, ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, urbanization, technology, labor, and notions of family have affected the political, social, economic, intellectual, and sexual lives of American women. Feminisms and the politics of gender are recurrent themes in this historical and cultural analysis. The honors course is enriched through seminar style classrooms, additional writing assignments, independent research, and attention to historiography. Credit may be earned in either HIST 51  or 51H, but not both. NR
