HSTA 386 Women's History

Rosy  the ReveterWomen have played an incredibly important role in shaping American society over the years, but you would be hard-pressed to find evidence of that in most traditional textbooks.  In this class we examine not only what women have done throughout American History, but also the unique perspectives (both contemporary and historical) they offer in recording those experiences.  Class projects include the production of radio documentaries and public poster presentations, which allow us not only to use the wealth of audio and visual materials available on this topic, but also to spread what we learn to the broader community.
