Description et objectifs

The United States since 1960

This course seeks to provide students with a survey of the political, social, cultural, and economic forces and circumstances that shaped the history of the United States between  1960 and 2008. The CM will introduce students to the major events, movements, and transformations that marked the social and political landscape, as well as to the different ways historians have interpreted them. TDs will reinforce the content of the CM, while providing opportunities for students to explore and discuss critical historical issues and historiographical debates using the analysis of primary sources as launching pads. The primary texts to be studied in the TDs are collected in a brochure that will be available to all students; textbook readings will be recommended from online sources and from materials accessible in UFR libraries and on the class moodle site.
