Know Your Red States
This course examines the evolution of conservative thought and politics in the United States since 1900. 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.
