Know Your Red States
This course offers a
workshop in historical research and writing, with an emphasis on the evolution
of conservative thought and politics in the United States. We will trace
continuity and change in the meaning of the 'conservative' label and in the
nature of the groups that identify or are identified with conservatism.
Students will encounter a range of conservative thinkers, evaluate historian’s
analyses of conservative movements, and produce an original research paper. This course is cross-listed with the Eugene
Lang College; open to seniors only.
